Help Us Make Kindergarten Mandatory in NYC

The New York City Council has been working with the New York State legislature to pass legislation (S7015 and A9861) authorizing New York City to make kindergarten mandatory.

We are very happy to report that the Senate Education Committee recently passed this legislation, putting us one step closer to our goal of ensuring that all NYC families have access to an early childhood education. However, additional action is still needed from the Senate and Assembly before they break for the summer.

Please spread the word and sign the "Kindergarten is a Right" petition to ensure that the State Legislature swiftly passes these bills.
