Send educational funds where they are needed most

As a widowed mother of two wonderful boys, a senior at East Hartford High School and a sixth grader at Sunset Ridge Middle School in East Hartford, I support SB 948 An Act Addressing Education Funding and Racial Equity in Connecticut. I work as a Pre-K, paraeducator at the Early Childhood Learning Center, also part of East Hartford Public Schools. In the time that I have lived here, I have come to this conclusion: the district that has the funds does not have the needs, and the district that has the needs does not have the funds.
