The Smart Schools Bond Act of 2014 authorizes the New York State Government to sell $2Billion worth of bonds to invest in school infrastructure upgrades including building additional classroom space for pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with buildings and installing high-tech internet capabilities in all schools. Proponents argue that the funds are necessary to prepare students to compete and find jobs in an economy that places high value on technical literacy. Opponents argue that the act will add a large and unnecessary debt to the state's budget. See recent School Technology Upgrade Bonds news
