ALBANY - The topic of education reform was anything but glossed over by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his State of the State address.

During his third address, Cuomo outlined several plans designed to improve the quality of education throughout the state.

The points presented by Cuomo in his speech were not overly varied from the preliminary recommendations that were made by the Education Reform Commission earlier this month. The commission was formed by Cuomo in April in order to combat the serious issues that have been facing the state's public education system.

According to information the governor's website, New York state spends more money on education than any other state in the nation, but ranks 39th in high school graduation rates. Only 73 percent of New York's students graduate from high school and, of that percentage, only 37 percent are college ready.
