"Connecticut has districts where people live in dire poverty. Cronin writes here that “Something is Rotten in the State of Connecticut.” as the State Board of Ed approved more seats for Steve Perry’s Capitol Prep Harbor School, a charter school that drains resources from the Bridgeport public schools. . Under the administration of Governor Dannel Malloy, the answer to the children in these poor and under-resourced districts is privately managed charter schools-- contractor schools. Malloy, needless to say, relies on hedge fund managers for campaign funding, and he is putty in their hands. Perry is the self-styled celebrity who once referred to teachers’ union members as “cockroaches” and on another occasion threatened a physical confrontation with critics" Read my commentary, after the article, to see how typical this is as public education is assaulted and taxpayers are robbed.
