Connecticut’s neighborhood public schools are true cornerstones of our democracy. They welcome students from every country, speaking many different languages, and they provide each child with a true pathway for success.
Connecticut teachers have opened their arms, their hearts, and their classrooms to ensure that all students take pride in their heritage, and know that their classrooms are places where they are welcomed and valued.
That is the core message of a new public awareness advertising campaign sponsored by the Connecticut Education Association and the National Education Association and featuring CEA member teachers and public school students.
Filmed at an elementary school in Waterbury, the TV, radio, and online ads underscore the vital role of teachers in our public schools. They remind listeners and viewers that teachers help students from every background learn, grow, and pursue their dreams with passion.
