Education Forum in New Britain

March 13, 2019

I was happy to join my New Britain legislative delegation, including our own Rep. Bobby Sanchez, co-chair of the legislature’s Education Committee, for an important Public Forum on Education Friday, March 8 at New Britain High School.

New Britain’s school Superintendent Nancy Serra also joined us for a discussion about legislation we are working on in Hartford addressing teachers’ pay equity and childcare access.

We need community feedback as we get closer to the voting deadlines on these and other measures currently before the committee.

Legislation we are considering includes:

  • SB 934, An Act Expanding Eligibility in the Care4Kids Program to Parents Enrolled in Other Types of Schools
  • SB935, An Act Requiring the Office of Early Childhood to Develop an Early Childhood Educator Compensation Schedule
