Friday the 13th is a lucky day for all NYS residents oppressed by the NYS Legislature's unfunded mandates. Why? Because the NYS School Boards Assocation (“NYSSBA”), a leading and influential voice for mandate
reform in this state, has signed on to the Mandate Relief petition. Here is NYSSBA's description of itself on its own website , “The New York State School Boards Association serves as the statewide voice of more than 700 boards of education. The collective influence of some 5,000 school board members, who constitute half the elected officials in the state, enables the Association to work toward the benefit of the elementary and secondary public school system in New York State. School board members are the educational leaders of their communities; they determine policies that govern the operation of their local public school system. ”
