press conference

 

To:  Education Providers:

Please be advised that we have decided to re-schedule the Press Conference for a future date.   Due to the competing interests in New York City and the Mayoral primary next week it was very difficult to get any commitments from elected officials or the media to attend our event. We were also informed by people in the media that their focus is on the Mayoral election next week.   

We will share news of the new date and plans for the event with everyone soon.

Chair of NYC Council Education Committee - Mark Treyger

In addition to IAC's Chris Treiber's testimony, two parents - Josephine Okungu and Jennifer Stewart - effectively and passionately made their points and actually moved Councilperson and Chair of the Education Committee, Mark Treyger, to issue a public statement of support - "As Chair of the Committee on Education and member of the Council’s Budget Negotiation Team, I will fight to achieve pay parity for 4410 special education teachers and to secure enough seats for all preschool children with disabilities. The City Council will fight to ensure that Pre-K is actually for all."
