The Two Connecticuts: Conversations about Race and Place
Session Three: Education
Once points of pride, the public schools in Connecticut’s largest cities deteriorated in the latter part of the 20th century, as middle-class people, mostly whites, fled to the suburbs. Yet schools in the state’s population centers must provide equitable education and prepare workers for our 21st century economy. This session looks at efforts to improve funding, teaching, and parental involvement, and at models that are working.
