Dear Teachers and Administrators:

On January 1, 2002 the fiscal year for the New York City Board of Education began! It is at this time that budgets and vendors’ lists are formulated and released.

As we enter the new year, we give thanks for all that we have and might have lost. We also reflect on what we hold so dear: the education of our children. This is the time that education dollars are allocated for the best materials, books, equipment and services to enable our students to achieve state standards.

For six years Education Update has been regarded as an expert and reliable source of information to help our readers, the decision makers in education, choose appropriate materials for their needs. Education Update is therefore providing the Marketing Supplement, sponsored this month by Wizard Detectors.

We would like to submit these innovative products and services for your consideration, as well as the visionary companies that offer them.

Best Wishes for an Academically Successful New Year,

Pola Rosen, Ed.D.
