Melorra Sochet on the CFE Lawsuit

On Wednesday, March 2nd, the DL21C Education Committee hosted "The Campaign For Fiscal Equity (CFE) Lawsuit: A Once In A Life Time Opportunity to Improve NYC Schools" featuring Melorra Sochet, Deputy Director, New York City Council Commission of CFE.
The CFE case has been caught in legislative and judicial battles for more than 10 years. In the latest round of judicial decisions, a three member panel of referees recommended that New York State provide NYC, on an annual basis, with an additional $5.6 billion dollars in operational funds. Just last week, the referees determinations were affirmed by the trial court judge.
Come and learn about the CFE case and hear how the City Council's CFE Commission is developing a meaningful educational reform plan for NYC.

Casey Foundation, a Senior Planner at the Vera Institute of Justice and a Senior Staff Attorney at the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights.
