CHALLENGE: Education is the human rights issue of our time. Education is a springboard for confidence and success and we need to make sure that all families and all kids have access to the same opportunities regardless of race, background, zip code or income.
With parent choice, Connecticut’s children can:
- Have equal access to high quality schools.
- Get the education and services that fit their specific needs.
- Be free to learn and free to succeed!
What can you do?
- Tell us what you think Connecticut lawmakers should do so every child can be free to learn.
- Provide your information so we can keep you informed about important research, legislative updates, activism and other opportunities as they arise.
Gov. Dannel Malloy’s education cost sharing executive order maintained flat funding for the Bridgeport school system, but that wasn’t what Bridgeport Superintendent Aresta L. Johnson was hoping for, according to her budget talking points.
Despite receiving the same amount of state education funds as last year, the Bridgeport school system has implemented a hiring freeze and an operational account freeze for nonessential and contractual accounts as the school system faces rising costs.
