New Yorkers owe a debt of gratitude to New York State Board of Regents Chancellor Dr. Merryl Tisch for her years of service on behalf of our school children and efforts to improve our education system. Dr. Tisch has been a principled leader who stood up for New York's struggling schools and a tireless advocate for higher standards that better prepare our children for future achievement.
Dr. Tisch's decades long commitment to the pursuit of excellence in education has served New York well. On behalf of our colleagues in the State Assembly, we commend her for her service to our schools, our children and our state. We will continue to work with all of our partners in education to achieve the best education possible for New York's students.
