The New York Academy of Public Education was established in 1912. At that time, the leaders of this professional honorary organization focused its primary efforts on the advancement and progress of urban education. The Academy successfully provided a common forum and meeting ground in fostering educational activities between the professional community and the public-at-large. One hundred years later our primary efforts remain the same.

Congratulations to member Linda Green who has earned an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership from the Esteves School of Education at Sage College. Dr. Green did her research in high poverty New York City elementary schools on the influence of instructional leadership practices on ELA teaching strategies.
We are proud to announce that our Director, Randy Asher, has accepted a new position at the Department of Education. Randy has been asked by Chancellor Farina to direct and oversee the initiative to shrink the costly Absent Teacher Reserve system presently in place. We congratulate our Director. He has done wonderful things as the Principal of Brooklyn Technical High School, and now leaves that awesome responsibility in the capable hands of Academy member David Newman.
