This theme has to do with the fact that in our state rich communities have a lot of money for their schools and poor communities do not. That is not fair and we demand a different, more equitable way of funding schools.
Issues happening now
No accessible mental health supports
Cuts to special ed
Cuts to arts
Not enough supports for ELL students
Magnet school is better and has more opportunities and resources than the high school
Magnet school vs. “regular” high school
Science and Tech has a lot more resources and opportunities than new london high school
Science and Tech has less suspensions than NLHS; a lot of things that you get suspended for at NLHS you might just get talked to by the dean at science and tech
What we want
FULL funding for our schools!
A new system of funding schools in CT that is equitable
More equality between magnet schools and “regular” schools as we transition to an all-magnet district. We need to keep an eye on who is getting what opportunities!
