Our students matter too…Fair funding for all
No matter how much homework they do, no matter
how hard they study, no matter how high their grades, each and every
one of our students in Canajoharie, and all of upstate for that
matter, do not have the same school experience as students in more
well-to-do districts. Our students are behind because these better

resources to their students than we can offer to ours. Every student
matters, and every student should have the opportunities for a rich
school experience – no matter where they live in the state.
