There are 530,612 students enrolled in the Connecticut public school system. Each one of them is deserving of an education that positions them for success.
ReadyCT – committed to advancing academic excellence and career-connected learning for our students – pursues policy opportunities and education program delivery in support of student achievement, with a focus on low-income and minority students whose academic performance traditionally trails their more affluent peers. We continue to explore ways to close that gap while also reshaping the definition of success for all students in ways that keep pace with our modern world.
Since 2011, with your help we have tallied policy gains that help to advance the effort.
A major roadblock to improving public education continues to be Connecticut’s fiscal reality.
Consecutive years of state budget deficits have diminished Connecticut State Department of Education resources. Although there are signs of short-term budget stability, nothing is certain.
By supporting ReadyCT, you are part of a response that will not deny any student a quality public education. Your gift can impact over half a million Connecticut public school students — the very same students who will ultimately join our workforce and contribute to growing our state’s economy. Let’s work together to make them – and our state – ready.
