The Education Alliance for Children in New York State (TEACH NYS)
TEACH NYS is an initiative dedicated to assisting families in the efforts they undertake in support of their children’s education. TEACH NYS works to ensure that students, parents, administrators and teachers of all schools, including independent and religious schools, have sufficient resources to meet the day-to-day reality of securing the fullest educational opportunities possible. The effort, which has been formed by a group of leading lay individuals from various faith communities, the business sector and other walks of life, incorporates an extensive campaign to educate, organize and mobilize New York families to shape legislation and education policy.
