Weighing the importance of education in concert with economics is always a challenge. 2012 is no exception. In fact, with so many of our states facing severe budget issues in addition federal as well as many local economic hardships the need to for a smart, and very focused educational policy is critical.
The home state of Why Science, Connecticut, is hard at work looking for great education solutions and we are very fortunate to have as our Governor Dannel P. Malloy. Governor Malloy is very engaged when it comes to education and he shares a goal with everyone here at Why Science to close the achievement gap.
“We should not and will not accept half-measures and repackaged versions of the status quo… Working with Commissioner Pryor, we will craft legislation that is potent enough to make Connecticut a national leader in narrowing the achievement gap, and comprehensive enough to set the stage for a restoration of Connecticut as a model for creating academic excellence for all.” – CT Governor Dannel P. Malloy
With that in mind, Governor Malloy is hosting a workshop that will help shape education reform proposals Governor Malloy will introduce during the upcoming 2012 regular session of the General Assembly, which begins in February.
The recently announced agenda for Thursday’s Education Workshop, which will combine experts, school administrators, teachers and other stakeholders to share ideas on how the state can confront the need to return Connecticut to a position of preeminence in education.
