During these unprecedented times, I look forward to partnering with the NYC Departments of Education and Consumer Affairs to host an online information session about our public schools and student loan debt for those in higher education.  We will discuss and answer questions on school readiness, resources, and requirements during this pandemic and in the future. Also, student loan debt is a tremendous burden on students and families; how to ease this burden will be discussed and resources offered.  The panelists will address the concerns of parents and students and other community partners. It is important that we continue to address the concerns of the community.

The Virtual Town Hall will be streamed at and constituents are encouraged to submit questions using the chat box or dedicated inquiry button.  Individuals wishing to listen via telephone may submit requests for call-in details to  Questions will be accepted until 4:00 PM on Monday.
