Improving Our Schools
Mike Spano is succeeding in making our schools better, reversing years of cuts that shortchanged our children. No one has fought harder to increase City and State funding for Yonkers schools.
That’s why in September Yonkers schools will add 25 more teachers and more than a dozen teacher’s aides. Plus the Spano Administration is instituting universal Pre-K, which is proven to boost children’s performance in schools and improve graduation rates. Yonkers will also increase classes for English language learners.
Under Mike Spano’s leadership graduation rates, reading and math scores have all increased every year. “Nothing is more important than providing a good education for every student in Yonkers. In the past our schools took a back seat. No longer. Now we are putting education first by giving our schools the funds that our kids deserve.”
