Students, parents, lawmakers head to Albany to help Yonkers schools
A group of parents, students and lawmakers headed to Albany Tuesday to try to help Yonkers schools.
The Yonkers School District is facing a $100 million budget deficit next fall. The group will be lobbying for Albany to use part of a $1 billion surplus to help the struggling public school system.
The state Senate and Assembly passed budget bills Monday that could mean $50 million in additional state aid for Yonkers. The bills must still be approved by a legislative conference committee. However, some say that money is still not enough to help the schools.
