The Connecticut Council for Education Reform (CCER) supports Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor’s efforts to reorganize the State Department of Education. Not only does this new structure align with the education reform principles outlined by Governor Malloy, but the creation of these new executive positions align with the recommendations put forth by CCER.

Connecticut is at a critical juncture in its reform efforts and CCER views this reorganization as a very positive step in working effectively towards raising student achievement throughout the state.
