Why do we need to improve school funding in Connecticut?

Our students deserve a better system.

Why are Public Schools in Need of a Funding Solution?
Connecticut Deserves a Better System.

Currently, the amount of money a school receives is not based on the needs of its students, and the amount taxpayers must pay to support education is very different in each town.

While some schools have what they need, others are struggling to provide basic supplies, making it difficult to offer their students the high-quality education they deserve.
