Governor Cuomo laid out a more modest plan than last year for education priorities -- and said NY intends to sue the federal government over its recent tax reform.
As expected, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo detailed his education proposals for 2018 in Wednesday’s State of the State speech.
While Cuomo only spent a few minutes on education, educators have a better idea of what’s coming in 2018 – aside from that looming $4.4 billion state budget deficit.
Those education priorities include:
Cuomo also called for more accountability in how local school districts spend state funds, condemning what he termed “trickle-down education funding.” The Governor also said the state intends to sue the federal government over the recent federal tax overhaul.
The Governor’s proposed 2018 budget is expected to be released on January 16.
