Governor Malloy on Education
Governor Dannel Malloy has some big challenges on his plate - not the least of which is an education overhaul.
Malloy promised “wholesale changes” in his state of the state address...changes that including adding $50 million into the allocation the state sends to towns - still far short of “fully funding” ECS - but seen by towns as a start.
Less embraced by some towns are other provisions - which include an attempt to force consolidation of smaller districts and to spend more money on charter schools.
Then, there’s the issue of reforming teacher tenure - a highlight of the speech - which has many teachers and their supporters wondering if the changes are too far, too fast.
Today, where we live, we’ll take questions from the governor on these issues - and the questions you have.
