We asked Connecticut parents why they should have the right to choose the best public schools for their children. This is what they said:
Every child learns differently. Each of them have different needs that need to be met on different levels. One school shouldn’t be tailored to all.– Jessica Martinez, Bridgeport Parent and School Board Member
Parents should have the option to choose the best school for their child, regardless of zip code. And school funding should be based on student need… not the type of school that the child attends. As parents and advocates for low-income and minority students across the state, it is time to take a stand.
Take action today and ask your legislators to support school choice and equitable school funding!
