AQE has been at the forefront of the resistance by fighting to protect public education from vicious attacks and with our determination to make our public schools even better. When Betsy DeVos proposed school privatization we fought back. When a proposal in Albany sought to repeal the equitable school funding formula that was created as a result of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity lawsuit, we fought back and won.
We need to resist Donald Trump, but our students need us to win right here in New York State as well. In 2017, under AQE’s leadership, there has been an incredible public mobilization of supporters focused on protecting the rights of New York students.
