Education Committee Chair

February 10, 2015

Rep. Andy Fleischmann has been tapped by House Speaker Brendan Sharkey (D-Hamden) to continue serving as the chairman of the Education Committee for the 2015/2016 Legislative Session.

"I’m honored to have been appointed Chairman of the Education Committee by Speaker Sharkey,” Fleischmann said. “I have done my best to work with all key educational stakeholders in developing reforms that are closing the achievement gap in our state, and improving how we perform compared to other states and countries. We also greatly expanded access to pre-school in the last few years. This year, I will work with the Speaker and the committee to ensure that from preschool through High School, educators are able to keep up the momentum we’ve established – helped, not hampered, by the state – so that all children reach their full potential.”
