A teachers union has launched a new campaign that would add to the quality of education for SUNY and CUNY schools.
The New York State United Teachers created the "Keep New York a State of Mind" campaign to increase funding, add full-time faculty, and make a bigger input on financial aid and tuition assistance programs.
The ad campaign is being launched through social media and union representatives say that they will be putting an added pressure legislatures for the help needed.

According to the NYSUT website the statewide union represents more than 600,000 teachers and school related professionals.
