11. How could the city ensure that all of our public school students receive instruction from qualified instructors?
The City should create a pipeline for professional artists and CUNY art students to receive teaching certifications and training in order to be able to be instructors in NYC’s public schools. With the deep local expertise in the arts sector, New York City’s students should have access to a world-class arts education. We should also focus on making sure that we recruit teachers of color.
