ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A coalition of New York education groups is weighing in on how the state should fund its schools.

The Educational Conference Board has scheduled a news conference in Albany Monday to release a report outlining its recommendations.

The board encompasses seven statewide groups representing New York’s superintendents, school business officials and administrators, Big Five districts, teachers unions, school boards and Parent Teacher Association.

The ECB says its report calls for an end to the Gap Elimination Adjustment, which lets the state take back some school aid to balance its budget. The report also supports the Foundation Aid formula for funding schools and initiatives like pre-K and new pathways to graduation.
