Students to ed. commish: Redistribute school aid

Education Commissioner John King Jr. this week visited with students in the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership, who told him how school cuts are hurting their educational opportunities.

The exchange included King challenging the students to come up with solutions on how to avoid cuts in an economic recession. The students knew their stuff, according to this Livingston County News report by Sally Santora.

“The students were quick with their response. Distribute the wealth fairly to all schools in the state, they told him.

“It’s important for all students in the state to get a good education. Distribute the wealth; we’d have a far better education system,” said Gillard.

King, during the same visit, said he would advocate for greater equity, according to a Daily News story.
