I know New York's most precious resource is its children. That is why I am fighting to improve the quality of every child's education, from preschool through college. I am working to ensure every child has an equal chance to succeed because each is taught by a top-notch teacher in a modern classroom.
Since the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act, we have learned a lot about how this law can be improved. I will use the pending reauthorization to expand support early childhood education, improve teacher training, lower class size, enhance parental involvement, eliminate environmental hazards in schools, and protect the programs that work for all of New York's children. And I will continue to hold the Administration accountable for not providing the resources that it promised to allow the landmark legislation to succeed.
