ConnCAN Joins Education Advocates for Ceremonial Bill Signing

On Wednesday, August 5, 2015, ConnCAN joined education advocates and legislative champions in Hartford for Governor Malloy's bill signing of PA 15-108 and PA 15-243 - two pieces of legislatives key bringing a diverse, highly-effective teaching force to Connecticut classrooms.

  1. Governor Malloy Signs Bill Improving Teacher Prep in CT
  2. Connecticut has made real progress improving education for all of our children in recent years, and passing this legislation will continue to move our state forward. This bill was crafted to address Connecticut's struggle to recruit and retain high quality teachers from diverse backgrounds. SB 1098 takes critical steps towards improvement by encouraging Alliance Districts to use their additional funding to develop strategies that attract minority candidates, while also providing for cultural competency training so our teachers develop the skills, knowledge and behaviors necessary for building positive relationships with their students. - Representative Bruce Morris
  3. ConnCAN is pleased that this law takes important steps towards ensuring every student has an excellent, well prepared teacher in every classroom and educators who reflect the communities and students they serve. - Jennifer Alexander, CEO, ConnCAN
