Where We Live: Legislative Priorities Outside The Capitol
With the state legislative session underway - advocacy groups are talking about their “priorities.”
And in this “education session” - many of those priorities have to do with education and funding education. Today, we’ll talk policy with two consortiums...and see if some of their ideas on state government line up with yours.
First, the Connecticut Association of Human Services is part of the “Better Choices for Connecticut” coalition. Their priorities center around the state’s big income and wealth inequality. They’re unveiling more recommendations next week in a public forum on “opportunity” in the state.
Then, we’ll hear from the Connecticut Council of Small Towns - which holds its Town Meeting this Wednesday in Cromwell. Town leaders will join us to talk about whether plans to reform education by the Malloy administration will work for the smallest communities in our state.
