Free to Learn

CHALLENGE: Education is the human rights issue of our time. Education is a springboard for confidence and success and we need to make sure that all families and all kids have access to the same opportunities regardless of race, background, zip code or income.

With parent choice, Connecticut’s children can:

  • Have equal access to high quality schools.
  • Get the education and services that fit their specific needs.

  • Provide your information so we can keep you informed about important research, legislative updates, activism and other opportunities as they arise.
