School Funding Should Be Based on Student Need… Not School Type

In many states, including neighboring states like New York and Massachusetts, education funding is based on need. It is not based on the type of public school the child attends. Not in Connecticut.

In CT, it is estimated that more than $380 million are left behind in traditional public schools when students transition to a school of their choice. Without money following the child, students suffer when they attend schools that are expected to do more with much less.

It’s time for school funding to be based on student need, rather than the type of school that they attend. It’s what’s best for our kids and its what’s best for Connecticut’s future.

Take action today and ask your legislator to support free, fair and equitable funding for all students in Connecticut!
