New York NOW

Taking a Look at Foundation Aid

December 6, 2019

This week on New York Now, we take a look at Foundation Aid. After months of public roundtables, will state lawmakers move to change the formula that determines aid for public schools? The Times Union’s Rachel Silberstein speaks with three education advocates about why they think it should happen.

Ray Suarez chats with the Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb (R-Canandaigua) about vocal opposition to the state’s criminal justice reforms set to take effect January 1. The reforms include the elimination of cash bail, which has been particularly controversial.
