UFT President Michael Mulgrew on the DOE's draft class size reduction plan

Press Releases

"Meeting the new class size standards is going to require a real plan -- and so far, the DOE hasn't managed to create one. This document is missing a strategy for implementation and a targeted proposal for where and when new seats should be built. The state passed the small class size law and increased funding to New York City public schools to pay for it. We will work with the state to make sure the New York City Department of Education fulfills its obligations and complies with this law."

— Michael Mulgrew, President of the United Federation of Teachers
