Governor Cuomo's State of the State speech was short on specifics for public education. We anticipate the upcoming legislative session will be dominated by discussions about state budget deficits and tax restructuring. Worth noting is that the governor never mentioned budget cuts. A few of the education items the governor did propose -- such as funding for prekindergarten, mental health services, and after school programs -- have the potential to make a positive impact on students. 

The governor's proposed expansion of Early College High Schools could help students get a jump on their college education and save money by earning college credits in advance.
