Quality Education for All Children

Vanessa believes an education is essential to the future success of our children and that every child deserves access to a qualified teacher, a well rounded curriculum and after school programs all within a school that has the resources they need.


As our Assembly Member Vanessa...

  • Secured a $360 million increase in state aid for New York City schools as part of the 2013-14 state budget

  • engaging parents and community leaders on building partnerships to provide after-school and mentoring programs
