Brooklyn’s educational system faces significant challenges. My office announced a $3.1 million investment towards education in the 2015 capital budget, funding that will go towards vital improvements to school libraries, technology programs, and needed infrastructure. In addition, I launched a public-private partnership between Borough Hall and Copia Interactive LLC to establish textbook-free classrooms in three Brooklyn schools this year – providing educational tablets for students at PS 196 Ten Eyck, MS 582 The Upper Academy, and Eagle Academy for Young Men II.

Any measurement of progress for achievement among today’s students and teachers must go further than just simply teaching to a “high stakes test.” I believe in a more balanced measurement system that takes into account different learning styles and types of education.
