Goal of Restore Education Funding/REF
To assure that education funding is sufficient for providing a free and appropriate public education and that legislative decisions about education policy are made in the best interest of the students.

Current Focus: Increase Education Funding and Decrease Standardized Tests


Strategies:
  • Educate ourselves and others about the current and future state of education funding and NYS and federal education law and regulation.
  • Present viable options to identified problems (State aid cuts, unfunded mandates, excessive assessments, etc...)
  • Mobilize communities in support of REF goals (via petitions, meetings, press conferences)
  • Build meaningful relationships with our state and federal legislators
  • Garner media attention for REF efforts
  • Build a coalition with related groups around New York State – especially within the Hudson Valley Region.
