Demonstrators will red for public education as they call for increased school funding. "There is a funding crisis with all public services in our state".

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, which focuses on statehouse races nationwide, said more than 50 educators are running in other states. "This about you all, kids all over the state", he said.

A 2017 survey of NY state school superintendents found that almost half of those who responded said they do not have the resources to help students with nonacademic needs, like mental health.
