Ken will be an advocate for students in all schools on the Upper West Side, whether they attend religious, private, district or charter schools. Ken wants to ensure that parents on the UWS have the best choices for their students. Moreover, Ken believes we need real equity when it comes to access to High School for West Side students. While the Upper East Side has several dedicated High Schools for local students, the Upper West Side does not, and Ken would advocate for the creation of one. This is an important step in also addressing the overcrowding of our schools due to over development and poor planning over the past decade.
