Gov. Mario M. Cuomo asked New York legislators last week to approve funding for a wide array of new programs in education and other areas and asserted that no tax increases would be necessary this year to support the programs.
The idea of year-round schooling makes more sense than ever, and with the recent impetus for introspection and correction in the schools, more educators and members of the public may be willing to agree to the change.
During the national debate about education that began last spring with the publication of "A Nation at Risk," the elementary schools have been almost entirely ignored. This is a pity, because it is in the elementary schools that children gain (or don't gain) a firm foundation for future learning.
FOUNDATION SUPPORT: Coverage of specific topics in Education Week is supported in part by grants from the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the CME Group Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, the Noyce Foundation, the Raikes Foundation, the Wallace Foundation, and the Walton Family Foundation. The newspaper retains sole editorial control over the content of the articles that are underwritten by the foundations. Additional grants in support of Editorial Projects in Education’s data journalism and video capacity come from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and the Schott Foundation for Public Education. (Updated 1/1/2017)
