Congressman Eliot Engel Gets 'A' from National Education Association PDF Print Email

alt


By Bryant Daniels, Director of Public Affairs, Office of Eliot Engel


Feb. 8, 2017:  Bronxville's Congressman Eliot L. Engel received an A on the National Education Association's (NEA) legislative report card for the 114th Congress.

The report card evaluates members of Congress based on their votes on issues of importance to the NEA. In the 114th Congress, those issues included reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, preserving the Affordable Care Act, and protecting DREAMers.

"I am tremendously pleased to have earned an A from the NEA," Engel said. "As a former teacher and union member, I share the NEA's commitment to high-quality public education, strong labor protections, affordable health care coverage, and LGBTQ rights."

Given the new administration's nominee for secretary of education, it is more important than ever to stand up for the indispensable federal programs that serve our students and to speak out against ill-advised proposals, such as school vouchers. "We ought to support our public school students," he said, "not shift valuable resources away from already cash-strapped public classrooms."

"As a member of Congress, I will continue to work to promote these values and make these issues a priority during the 115th Congress."

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
