Watch ad and take action

Teachers are turning up the volume on the problem of unreliable testing that has overtaken Connecticut public school classrooms—in new TV and digital ads that raise awareness about the need to reduce testing and test prep and restore more time for learning in our classrooms to help every student achieve.

CEA President Sheila Cohen said, "As Connecticut's largest teacher organization, we have stepped up and spoken out consistently about the problems associated with the SBAC test. Now we are taking our efforts to a new level with our advertising campaign."

Connecticut teachers are relentless in their focus on student growth and achievement despite the state's ill-advised and misguided support of the unfair, invalid, and unreliable SBAC test.

The commercial focuses on how one teacher can impact a child's life and together teachers inspire a generation of Connecticut students and help every child achieve. The ad features teachers from across the state interacting with students in the classroom showing how teachers inspire a love of learning in their students.
