Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and his Republican challenger, Tom Foley, each will address the state’s largest teachers’ union, the Connecticut Education Association, on Saturday, but the forum is open only to members.

The two candidates will address the union one after the other. Joe Visconti, a critic of the Common Core curriculum standard who is on the ballot as a petitioning candidate, also will address the union.

The state’s other major teachers’ union, AFT-Connecticut, has endorsed the governor.
