Connecticut’s lawmakers must see through the ‘edu-profiteers’ and testing mania

I can’t begin to tell you how frustrating it is, as a public school employee and practicing school psychologist, to have federal legislation written that continues to allow our students to be assessed by an unproven and invalid standardized test process and also enables the charter school industry to take funds allocated for public school students and divert them to their own private business interests.

Connecticut lawmakers should pass comprehensive charter school reform

Connecticut children need new, high-quality school options, and Connecticut taxpayers need an updated charter law that ensures those schools are well run and successfully monitored. We encourage the General Assembly to focus on passing comprehensive charter authorizing reform that implements all of the policies above – but to leave the moratorium on the cutting room floor.
