A shiny apple to U.S. Congressman. John Larson and the hundreds of teachers, students, paraprofessionals, and community members who attended our rally in East Hartford and stood up and spoke out against attacks on our schools and our teachers.

NEW CEA TV AD

Parents criticize the governor and some legislators for their plans to balance the budget on the backs of their children and teachers, in CEA’s newest TV ad airing tomorrow.

Watch the ad and hear one young boy school Connecticut’s politicians.

 

We can’t stop now. Keep making those calls to your legislators. Tell them to vote against any proposals that will hurt our students and our schools.

A rotten apple to U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, for so many reasons, but just this week for attacking East Hartford public schools and for proposing to cut the federal education budget and giving $1 billion to her special projects for the elite and wealthy.
