Teachers You Know

Here is a 3 minute, 39 second video featuring the kind of teachers you and I both know. Please watch.

I have worked in Connecticut’s most affluent suburbs and most distressed cities with public school teachers just like these. They are everywhere. They are legion.

Teachers are the solution. They help our kids to love to learn and to develop the skills they need for their future.

Don’t believe those who regard privatizing education as a slam-dunk, personal money maker.

Don’t believe those who take money from public schools to set up charter schools which lack financial transparency and have no better results for students.

Don’t believe those who take advantage of those in poverty.

Don’t believe those who have never taught for one day or influenced one student.


Let’s celebrate the good work and the good learning that happens every day in Connecticut public schools.
