• Attorney General lawsuit against Utica School District *
    Schneiderman takes Utica schools to court over alleged unfulfilled obligations to refugees. At the same time, the State owes the school district $47M this year alone. Dr. Rick Timbs has a lot to say about that. Click on the link above for news coverage starting November 18.

“The same attorney general that is filing the suit is fighting the district in two court cases basically. What I wonder is just how much of a severe economic hit can the state force on a very poor district like Utica for seven years and not have it affect their educational plan in some way regardless of recent allegations.”
~ Dr. Rick Timbs, SSFC Executive Director

“It is unfortunate another lawsuit is needed, but we are left with no choice. The fact of the matter is our state government has been unwilling or unable to honor its responsibility to students for years now.’’
