New York’s per student spending is more than 50 percent above the national average.

The New York State Commission on Property Tax Relief recently
released their final report with recommendations on how to fix this.
It is an excellent report that is very interesting reading. You can read it here.

Read the report and spread the word. New York needs to start implementing these changes now.


I guess you do not have a military service exemption.

Exactly....It's funny how people throw out emotionally charged statements without anything to prove what they are saying. Also NY tends to have one of the highest percentages of students graduating with high AP scores too: College Board Announces 2009 AP® Results: More Diverse Group of US Students Succeeding on AP Exams, Predictors of Success in College

I was not comparing FL to NY. I was simply stating that NYS is in deep doo doo pursuant to the latest studies.

Poverty News Blog: New York state poverty higher than national average

I dispute your data on teen pregnancy. Where did you get your facts?

But you live in FL and even the topics you discussed were shown to be worse or on par there. Also, many in poverty in NY are working poor.

I grew up in NYC. Lived there until 1988. I have family in Massena, Syracuse, Watertown, Oneida, NYC, Westchester County, Long Island and Buffalo. By no means am I comparing FL to NY.

Yes, on par indeed. Lots of room for improvement.

You can debate whatever you like but it doesn't make you correct. Just type "states with highest teen pregnancy rates" into Google & you'll find many lists. The ones I looked at all had Florida in the top 10 (usually 5 or 6) & none had NY anywhere in the top 10.

NYS probably ranks 11th nationally. Maybe what you are saying is the studies posted are wrong. Thats fine.

NYS is in lowest ten. Florida ranks just under Top ten.
