Assemblywoman Lupardo earnestly addresses the issue of poverty in regards to the City of Binghamton school district. "One in two children in the City of Binghamton are living below the poverty line," Lupardo said. "It's really hard to imagine the challenges that these superintendents are facing when children come to school this way. We obviously want this to become part of the budget negotiations. Clearly, we've been talking about this for a very, very long time. The foundation aid formula has been cobbled together over many, many years and disenfranchises school districts like ours."
