ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Governor Cuomo's New York Education Reform Commission has been traveling across the state, hearing from concerned citizens, school administrators and even students about their experiences with the public school system.
Those groups came together Monday at Mohawk Valley Community College. They talked about budget issues, college readiness and everything in between and they hope action is taken soon.
"Students are being forced to lose programs ranging from advanced placement courses to career and technical education, even some schools cutting kindergarten to half day," said Bill Easton, Alliance for Quality Education Executive Director.
The commission will suggest recommendations to the Governor by December 1st, discussing how best to improve New York's school system.
