We will review and update you on new budget proposals expected in the coming days–please stay tuned for a call to action.
CEA is urging legislators to reject any budget proposal that shifts the state’s responsibility for education funding and teacher retirement onto Connecticut’s cities and towns.
This proposed cost shift would result in
- higher property taxes
- teacher layoffs
- larger class sizes
- reductions in critical student support services
- elimination of programs such as foreign language and full-day kindergarten in many districts
