We partner with educators, students, parents and community leaders to identify the most pressing issues facing Connecticut schools and students, and to develop campaigns to support needed change and remove policy barriers. This year, our goals are to:
Recruit Great Teachers and Leaders
Streamline certification rules and open up flexible pathways to give quality candidates the opportunity to teach or lead in our schools.
Improve Access to High Quality Schools and Fund Students Fairly
Continue the fight to fund all students fairly, based on their learning needs across all types of public schools, including public charter schools, so that all Connecticut students get the educational opportunities they need and deserve.
Prepare Students for Success in College and Careers
Push for clear, easily accessible data on how well students are being prepared for college and career and for an annual report on education and skill levels required for the fastest growing jobs in our state.
Students deserves access to the best teachers and administrators possible, in every neighborhood across the state–and diverse, highly-qualified educators deserve a clear path to the classrooms where they can change students’ lives.
