Final Action Plan
 NY Education Reform Commission
January 6, 2014 Dear Governor Cuomo:On behalf of the members of the
 NY Education Reform Commission, I am pleased to present you with our Final Action Plan to strengthen and improve the public education system in New York State. This Final Action Plan builds upon the Preliminary Action Plan that we delivered to you a year ago. As you will recall, that plan reflected the testimony and input of over 300 parents, teachers, students, administrators, and business people from all around the state, as well as our own views and insights into the challenges and opportunities associated with improving public education in the state. Happily, you and your colleagues in the Legislature seized upon our preliminary recommendations and enacted virtually all of them. But, more can and must be done to ensure that all of New York’s children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education—one that will prepare them to productively participate in the workplace and world of tomorrow. In this second phase of our work, the Commission heard from a number of national experts about innovative strategies that are working to improve student achievement in school districts and states across the country. We also expanded the scope of our work to include the critical transitions that occur between high school and college and career. We sought to develop a set of recommendations that would integrate our system of public education to provide the maximum benefit to each and every child in our state.Of course, within a commission as diverse as ours, there were many different voices and perspectives. Not everyone felt we went far enough on every issue to satisfy their particular points of view. In the end, however, the recommendations set forth in this Final Action Plan enjoy the support of virtually all members of the Commission. There was broad consensus among us that these recommendations, if enacted, will greatly strengthen the education pipeline and enhance the opportunities for all children in New York to get the quality education they deserve.In closing, on behalf of all of the members of the Commission, I want to thank you for your leadership in this critical area, and for allowing us to participate in helping shape the agenda for change going forward. Sincerely, Richard D. Parsons Chairman of the
NY Education Reform Commission
