Research & Policy

NYCAN’s original reports and briefs provide the in-depth analysis of public education in New York that is the foundation for our policy recommendations.

Communications & Mobilization

NYCAN creates informed citizens with a commitment to common sense education reform through a combination of media work, electronic communications and social networking, publications, on-the-ground community organizing, partnerships with like-minded civic and community groups and events. Then, we make it easy for New York’s growing cadre of education reform advocates to take meaningful and impactful action through our e-advocacy system.

Advocacy for Policy Change

Grounded in our research and policy work, NYCAN teams with our citizen advocates and key state officials to develop and enact concrete, meaningful education reforms through both legislative and administrative action.
