The Alliance for Quality Education is a statewide grassroots movement mobilizing communities across the state to keep New York true to its promise of ensuring a high-quality public school education to all students regardless of zip code. New York has the highest rate of inequality and per pupil expenditure gap between high needs and low needs school districts this causes a tale of two school systems. AQE is working to end the systemic racism and economic oppression in New York’s public schools that continues to shortchange generations of Black, Brown, low-income and immigrant students. AQE works with the community to build people power and create a public demand for a high-quality public school education for all of New York’s students.
