NY Teachers Union Threatens Legal Action Against School Funding Cuts

ALBANY – As students and parents struggle to master remote learning, the New York State United Teachers Union – or NYSUT – is preparing legal action against the state, calling on state leaders to stop funding cuts to schools.

NYSUT says the planned 20 percent cut in aid, added to years of funding shortfalls and increased operating costs during the pandemic would disproportionately impact high-need, school districts and potentially violate a student’s right to a sound, basic education.
