Here’s how Adams’ proposed budget could affect schools

In his first budget proposal since taking office, Mayor Eric Adams this week outlined cuts to the education department and other city agencies. The backlash was swift.
Some education advocates called it a “scarcity” budget, with one group saying it would cause “irreparable harm” to students.

The reality, however, is more complicated.
Though Adams identified $557 million in reductions to the teaching workforce, school budgets, and the ranks of school safety agents, his budget proposal would actually boost overall city spending on schools by 3% compared to last year.
