In November 2013, NYC will elect its next mayor. The candidate who wins the mayoral race must ensure the NYC public school system provides excellent educational opportunities for all students, as well as supports parents and community members. The Junior Board of Advocates for Children and NYU Law's Education Law and Policy Society invite you to attend a panel discussion on the potential changes to education policy that a new administration may bring. Kim Sweet, the Executive Director of Advocates for Children, will moderate the discussion.

Refreshments will be provided. We encourage you to RSVP if you are able to attend:
