Mission Statement

We believe that the future is in our classrooms. The Alliance for Quality Education (AQE) aims at ensuring the constitutional right of every child in New York State to a sound basic education and the opportunity to learn. Along with parents, students, and volunteers, we have worked tirelessly to secure fair funding linked to increased accountability, best educational practices, and parental involvement. We believe that every student must have adequate resources and instruction to be prepared for college, citizenship, and the 21 century job market.

Description

Founded only in 2000, the Alliance for Quality Education (AQE) has quickly become New York state's lead community-based organization in the fight for high quality public education. A statewide non-profit, AQE unites a coalition of over 230 organizations of parents, children's advocates, schools, teachers, clergy, and others.

AQE believes it will take fair funding and smarter spending to support better schools and give every child in New York State a quality education from pre-K to high school graduation. Truly statewide, AQE has active community-based education coalitions in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, the Capital District (Albany), New York City and Long Island.

Working with all stakeholders, but emphasizing the involvement of parents and youth, AQE combines leadership development, community organizing, electronic activism, extensive media relations, policy work, and lobbying within a cohesive campaign for fundamental education reform. This recipe has successfully made adequate funding to create quality schools for every child a high profile issue throughout the state.
