FROM THE DESK OF SENATOR JACK M. MARTINS

An Education No-Brainer

Could you imagine if tomorrow school districts across New York State had to absorb more than 400,000 new students?

Our current facilities could in no way withstand that kind of blow. In each district, new schools would have to be immediately built and hundreds of teachers, aides, and support staff would have to be hired.
