During his State of the State Address kicking off the 2019 legislative session today Governor Ned Lamont received a standing ovation when he praised teachers.
“We have the greatest teachers in the world,” Lamont said. “We ought to tell them that. Thank you for what you do, teachers.”
Lamont’s State of the State address followed his inauguration ceremony, where he and the state’s constitutional officers were sworn in.
“We’re in this together,” Lamont told those gathered for the inauguration. “Together, we will craft an honest, balanced budget which does not borrow from the future, but invests in the future. We owe our kids nothing less.”
CEA is working closely with newly elected and appointed officials this legislative session on issues critical to students, teachers, and public education.
