ConnCAN Reacts to Governor Dannel P. Malloy's Proposed Budget to Provide A Fairer Distribution of Education Aid

On Monday, February 6, Governor Dannel P. Malloy held a press conference to announce his plans for a new school funding formula. ConnCAN CEO, Jennifer Alexander issued this statement:


“We are encouraged that Governor Malloy is taking proactive measures to fix our state’s education funding formula this legislative session, rather than wait for the courts to decide the matter. While we are waiting to see the specific details of his proposal, the Governor’s announcement today of key changes to the ECS formula appear to be a promising step in the right direction to developing a funding formula that benefits all of Connecticut’s kids. We hope that the Governor and legislative leaders will work towards a comprehensive and sustainable funding formula that funds all students fairly, across all types of public schools.”
