Alliance for Quality Education (AQE) is a broad based coalition of 230 parent, labor, service, organizing, advocacy and youth organizations from across New York State that mobilize to pressure public and elected officials to provide adequate funding for public education at the state and local levels, and to insure equity in resources being directed to NYC schools and other districts with significant concentrations of high needs students. AQE’s successes have resulted in billions of dollars of additional funding being allocated to high-needs schools in NYC and across the state. Hazen’s $40,000 renewal grant in 2010 will support the coordinating and organizing work of the state-wide coalition to ensure equitable allocation of resources to public schools in New York City and throughout the state.
