High Spending on K-12 Education: How Does New York Differ From Other States?

This report examines the components of education spending in New York and other states to assess the substantial difference in expenditures. It does not attempt to address the much more ambitious question of why New York spends more than most states. Understanding how spending in New York differs from that in other states is crucial to addressing more ambitious questions.

Teacher Preparation

Teacher preparation is an important activity at the State University of New York. Sixteen campuses offer teacher preparation programs. The State University, in turn, is a major supplier of New York’s public school teachers. The State University’s teacher preparation programs face challenges from several forces impinging at once: the drive for higher learning standards for students, growing teacher shortages in selected regions and fields, and new regulations for teacher preparation programs and teacher certification, all in an environment of vigorous and sometimes harsh debate.
Donald J. Boyd, December 1999

Time For Leadership: Restoring the New York State Education Department

There is no agency in New York State government with a mission more vital than that of the Education Department. The state’s commissioner of education, Richard P. Mills, charged this commission to undertake a rapid but intensive review of the Education Department. After listening closely to more than 200 people inside and outside the department who care about it and who know its work, they report one fundamental finding to the Commission and to the Board of Regents: It is time for leadership.
