On September 7, 2016, Connecticut Superior Court Judge Thomas Moukawsher ruled in the longstanding case of Connecticut Coalition for Justice in Education Funding (CCJEF) v. Rell. Judge Moukawsher’s ruling was notable for the breadth of education policy issues it discussed. In addition to school finance, the ruling touched on the relationship between the State and local governments as it relates to public schools; elementary and secondary education standards; teacher evaluation, hiring, and compensation; and special education identification and spending. As the Connecticut School Finance Project is devoted solely to issues related to school finance in Connecticut, this one-pager focuses only on Moukawsher’s ruling as it relates to school finance.
