Education in Queens
a School within
Teach... Your Children
We know the issue of children's education
is very important to families in Queens.
The Borough President's Office
works closely with schools, universities and other education-related
organizations advocating the educational needs of the children
and residents in the borough of Queens.
As part of this effort, Helen Marshall participated in the 2011 Community and Citywide Education Council Task Force, along with fellow Borough Presidents Scott Stringer of Manhattan, Ruben Diaz Jr. of the Bronx and Marty Markowitz of Brooklyn, as well as Pubic Advocate Bill De Blasio. The report, entitled A Vote for Change: A Blueprint for Reforming Community and Citywide Education Councils in New York City and The Department of Education's Approach to Engaging Parent Leaders, was released in September 2011. We encourage all residents to read it.
In early 2009, hearings began
on the issue of school governance within New York City. Borough
President Marshall gave her testimony at the first hearing
on January 29th.
Queens is home to a number of institutions of Higher Education.
