Still No Budget for Connecticut

School funding remains in question

Legislators may vote on a new state budget on September 14. A new plan unveiled by Governor Malloy would lessen the school funding cuts that were part of his executive order, but it would also impose new cuts on cities and towns that will impact school budgets.

Read CEA President Sheila Cohen's statement.

Legislators need to hear from you. Contact your legislators and urge them to pass a budget before the Oct. 1 deadline to avoid cuts in the Governor's executive order that would strip $557 million in education funding in 139 districts.

Tell legislators to pass a state budget as soon as possible that:

  1. Protects local school budgets and the education of all children
  2. Maintains critical services for families and communities
  3. Provides for a reliable revenue stream to cure the state's chronic underfunding of public schools
