Flood: Education Funding Drops to Bottom of Hochul’s List

A Statement from Assemblyman Ed Flood (R, C-Port Jefferson) on Executive Budget Proposal.

“The proposed Executive Budget highlighted $10 million to train 20,000 teachers on a back-to-basics reading program while lowering the amount of funding our public schools will receive to help our students and teachers rebuild what was lost during COVID. Gov. Hochul claims education for our younger generations is her top priority yet at the same time schools are lowering their testing standards. Instead, Hochul is dumping taxpayer dollars into New York City’s disastrous migrant crisis and leaving the priorities of New Yorkers behind.”
