Nixon says funding is unfair in many districts across New York because more money goes to wealthy districts.

She also believes treatment of students needs to change. She's calling for an end to suspensions for children in kindergarten through 3rd grade.

Polls show the governor with a big lead over Nixon.

The two will debate next Wednesday at Hofstra University.
