Coalition Surveys Candidates on Education Reform Issue
By Elizabeth Christensen
Albany, NY – A coalition of parents, teachers, and children's advocacy groups has surveyed candidates about the issue of reforming New York's school aid formula.
"The Alliance for Quality Education" says most candidates want to change the way schools are awarded state money.
Most said wealthy suburban districts should have to give up some state aid so that poorer urban and rural districts could improve their curriculum.
AQE Spokesman Bill Cohen says of all the candidates surveyed, democrats tended to support harsher reforms than republicans.
