School Budget Vote - Today

Don't forget that today is the day school budgets come up for a vote across New York State. I don't necessarily think holding these votes in May is ideal (what we the Legislature's work still undone and uncertainty everywhere) but, this is the day and you all need to participate in the process. And if you don't vote today, remember to not talk to me about schools because I don't want to hear it. Clear?

Albany's proposed budget is another reduction from the previous year's budget and hopefully this proposal will be passed. Remember that disliking Charter schools is not a valid reason to vote "no" on this thing because somehow they still get their funding even if this budget goes down. Don't know where to vote? Here is a link to a searchable street directory. Get there!
