On Feb. 6, 2016, The Hour published an article by Kevin Schultz about legislative support for public school funding reform, and cited ConnCAN:
Individuals and organizations across the state seemed pleased with the idea of bringing the issue of educational funding to the forefront.
ConnCAN, the Connecticut Coalition for Achievement Now, an organization dedicated to improving education outcomes for Connecticut’s kids, is encouraged that Duff sponsored Senate Bill 2.
Jennifer Alexander, CEO for ConnCAN, said his action sends “a strong signal that the development of a new, more equitable education funding formula will be a top priority this session.”
“It is time that we fairly fund students based on their learning needs, across all types of public schools,” Alexander said.
