Farewell Regent Johnson

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of visionary New York State Regent Judith Johnson.

Regent Johnson was a champion for equity, access and fairness across all New York State School districts. She used her voice to challenge existing educational policies in pursuit of equity. 

Throughout her career Regent Johnson was a trailblazer, pushing to end generational poverty and to provide high-needs schools with the same tools as wealthier ones. Regent Johnson was a role model for educators in search of higher quality education and will be deeply missed. We offer our condolences to Regent Johnson’s family and friends.
