NEW HAVEN, CT – “The Connecticut Council for Education Reform applauds this bold education reform initiative set forth by the Malloy Administration. As advocates for our state’s business and civic interests, we know that the status quo is not working and must be changed now. The reform principles outlined today are vital to our state’s children and critical to our future economic wellbeing. We strongly encourage the Governor and the Legislature to push through comprehensive education reform during the upcoming legislative session. We look forward to working with the Administration and the Legislature to make this reform a reality for Connecticut’s students.”
