“As Chancellor, the ability to have you in our schools is so important to us and for our students. The value that you bring to those schools is tremendous, just tremendous. I am a big believer in City Year, I am a big believer in what City Year represents. I believe that City Year should be in every one of our schools, because if we had folks like you in all of our schools, our schools will be a better place. But most importantly our students will be in a better place. And this is all about our students and how we make sure our students are graduating, and not just graduating, but graduating college and career ready.” - October 7, 2011 - Chancellor Dennis Walcott, NYC Department of Education
