9. With hundreds of schools out of compliance with NYS Education Department instructional requirements, will you publicly call on the NYC DOE to properly enforce and implement city and state arts learning mandates?

Yes, as a result of schools not meeting the state mandates for arts instruction, scores of children do not receive clear pathways to meaningful arts education. I will require the DOE to live up to its mandate of meeting the NYSED Arts Learning Requirement by the end of eighth grade, understanding how critical arts education is to social emotional development.
