Public education is the bedrock of America, and nowhere is this more evident than in New York State. The State University of New York is the largest employer in our state, and New York consistently ranks among the highest in the nation for quality of education. We need to make sure that our education services are the best in the nation, from pre-K all the way through college. To do this we need to make sure our public schools are properly funded.
On top of this, we need to invest in the future of our children and the next generation by making public higher education tuition-free. Families struggle to afford higher education which is a vital aspect of our modern economy, and the state and taxpayers would save money as this is a needed investment that will pay back 10 fold.
We also need to provide affordable access to trade schools within New York State and provide financial assistance for those who want to pursue trade labor.
