All the education in the world does no good if someone can still legally discriminate against you in employment, housing, credit and public accommodations. I'm all for effective education for ALL students but if any of them are transgender or otherwise gender nonconforming, no matter how smart they are or how well educated, they can still be denied housing, employment and services in the public sphere simply because of something they were born with.

The Gender Expression Non Discrimination Act, which is NOT supported by Mr Goodell or Ms Young, is vital protection for a vulnerable minority. None of the doomsday scenarios spun by opponents of the law have ever come to pass in the other states, counties, cities and towns - including NYC, Albany, Rochester and Buffalo - where similar laws have been passed.

Mr Cuomo, Ms Young, Mr Goodell, get this bill passed!!

Cuomo has CUT $1.5 billion per year for the last three years from education, for a total of $4.5 billion. Not to mention he increased cost via mandates, useless APPR, Commmon Core, directors of this & that etc. Now, in an election year he is looking to "fund education". What a weasel.

Cuomo needs an education on the 2nd Amendment. He is a tyrant.

Carlaw....you display too much common sense for politicians and those with short memories. New York State was for years #1 in the nation in education of its children. Fifty or so years ago they decided to throw money (Taylor Law) at the system. Look where it got New York's rank in education. Beware of politicians and liberals.

We have had technology in our school systems for years. Most homes poor or not have the most updated 4th generation iPods and iPhones. That is part of the problem. This stuff is not used by our children for research but instead it is used and valued for social media. Politicians see the value of social media and it is how they get reelected now.It's not the lack of technology but how we use it that counts.
