As a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science as well as State University of New York at Albany and Buffalo Law School, Ben believes in providing every child with a world class education. That’s why Ben has always prioritized public education, winning:
- 900 new pre-kindergarten seats and funding for 824 new school seats
- Investing $6.5 million in STEM education, rebuilt our schools, building new gyms, and green roofs for schools
- Laws to support LGBT students, put GPS on school buses, and add more schools seats
- Won $14.99 a month Internet for low-income public school students
As the next Borough President Ben will keep fighting for his daughter and all of our kids to pass legislation he’s authored to end youth hunger as part of universal after school, to give a laptop with Internet for every child, to end overcrowding, provide universal childcare, and finally desegregate our schools online and in-person.
