A former public high school teacher, Democrat Toby Ann Stavisky knows what our children need to succeed- and she's fighting for them every day in the Senate. No matter what age, or grade level, from pre-kindergarten to the day they graduate from college, our kids can always count on Senator Toby Ann Stavisky's leadership and dedication.
As the current Chair of the Higher Education Committee, Senator Stavisky secured millions of dollars in funding to improve our primary school classrooms and ensure that our junior high schools have the state of the art technological upgrades they deserve. She also provided nearly one million dollars in grant money for our local colleges and passed legislation which provides low interest student loans, making higher education a real possibility for all of New York's high school students. When the Republicans proposed budget cuts which would have taken money away from arts and sciences programs at Queens middle schools, Senator Stavisky fought against them so that our children could receive the well-rounded education they deserve.
Senator Stavisky is one of the foremost advocates for both lower and higher education in the State Senate and she will continue to fight for our students and teachers in the years to come.
