Public Education

Effective public education, in elementary, middle and high school, is essential to preparing our children for success. The schools of the 39th Council District have some of the city's best teachers, principals and parent leaders, and we need to do everything we can to make sure they are supported in the crucial work that they do.

A Great Event for Our Schools


I want to report back on the fantastic results of the Brooklyn PTA 5K Run/Walk for Schools which took place in Prospect Park on Saturday. Over 500 parents, teachers and students from 17 different Brooklyn public schools joined us for the event and their efforts raised over $6500 which will be split up amongst the schools.

I have to give a huge thank you to everyone who came out and joined us for the run. Saturday was a great day to be in the park - whether you were running, walking, strolling OR scooting - and I hope that all of the participants had as much fun as I did.
