DemocracyReady NY Coalition Launch

Democracy ready

A new statewide group working to secure the right of all New York students to a quality P-12 education that prepares them for effective civic participation, announced its launch in February.

The DemocracyReady NY Coalition is an alliance of educational-justice organizations, civic-education leaders, and government advocates forged by the Center for Educational Equity at Teachers College, Columbia University, following a year of consultation with stakeholder groups and leaders from across the state. DemocracyReady NY will help guide New York’s legislature and education policymakers as they advance their education priorities for the 2019 legislative session and beyond.
