Power of Ten Update
Call Governor Cuomo, tell him: “Save East Ramapo”
In his State of the State address, Governor Cuomo appointed himself the students’ lobbyist. He said “…consider me the lobbyist for the students,” and “I will wage a campaign to put students first…”
Well, the students of East Ramapo public schools are in need of some results from their Governor/Lobbyist.
CALL GOVERNOR CUOMO TODAY!!!
Tell him the East Ramapo Central School District was once considered among the best in NY State. Today, the graduation rate is just 74%, and for Hispanic Students just 54%! Tell him he cannot let the destruction of East Ramapo continue!
The East Ramapo School Board has gutted public education! They have dramatically increased class sizes, decreased or eliminated arts, music, advanced placement and sports programs.
East Ramapo is not just another district with budget problems. Our board has illegally diverted funds to segregated private religious schools, depriving public school students of their right to a quality education. NY State MUST intervene!
Also, don’t forget, the online petition at http://poweroften.us/sign-the-petition/ will close on June 15th, so tell all your friends to sign right away!
