    NY Daily News | Mayor Adams shouldn’t let school programs that help tens of thousands of students expire this year, says a coalition of education advocates, attorneys and other services providers.

    “With the pandemic having exacerbated the need for mental health support for students and with the increase in newly arrived immigrant families, thousands of whom are living in our city’s shelters, the need for these programs has only grown,” read the letter spearheaded by Advocates for Children and signed by more than 60 organizations.
