Every child deserves an excellent education. Equity means meeting every student where they are, and providing the support, resources, and high expectations for them to achieve at consistently high levels. The Department of Education works hard to ensure that every student in every borough, district, neighborhood, and school have the tools they need to achieve their dreams. We know that excellence is more than a goal; it is the birthright of every child in our city. We know that equity is more than a slogan, it is the promise we make to our students and it requires hard work.
