STATEMENT FROM NYC CHARTER SCHOOL CENTER CEO JAMES MERRIMAN ON GOVERNOR CUOMO’S BUDGET ADDRESS
(New York, NY) Please credit the following statement to James Merriman, CEO of the New York City Charter School Center (Charter Center):
“Once again, Governor Cuomo demonstrated his unwavering commitment to ensuring every student in our state has access to a great public education. By providing public charters with the resources to account for the actual rental costs associated with running their schools, and proposing additional funding for both traditional and charter school classrooms, he has continued to put public education over politics.
“We thank the Governor for his leadership, and we look forward to encouraging the state legislature to match his commitment to public education during this difficult budget environment for all students – regardless of whether those schools are traditional district schools or charter schools.”
