Cross post from HatCityBLOG

Via Gov. Malloy’s office:

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman today announced that they will hold two education town hall meetings in Windham on Wednesday, March 14 and in Bethel on Thursday, March 15.

The Windham event will be held at Windham High School (355 High Street), and the Bethel event will be held at Bethel High School (300 Whittlesey Drive). Both town hall meetings will run from 7:00-8:00 p.m., and doors will open at 6:15.

The events will be the fifth and sixth stops on the Governor’s Education Reform Tour. These town hall-style meetings are focused on the topic of education reform and give Governor Malloy and Lt. Governor Wyman an opportunity to meet with all members of the public, including parents, students, teachers, and other concerned residents, for a conversation on proposed reforms to improve the state’s public school system. In February, Governor Malloy announced a comprehensive proposal aimed at improving the state’s achievement gap, which is the worst in the nation.

Additional locations and dates on the Governor’s tour will continue to be added across the state until the legislature approves a bill addressing each of the six principles the Governor outlined in a letter to them in December.
