Budget cuts are harming New York City students, who now have fewer textbooks and attend overcrowded classrooms, according to a survey of union leaders and representatives conducted by the United Federation of Teachers. Respondents reported cuts to after-school programs, tutoring and other supports affecting more than 90% of the city's students. "Over one million of our students are truly having their education negatively affected by what has happened between the state, federal and city budgets," union President Michael Mulgrew said.
