Connecticut is Standing Up for Public Schools
NSBA and state associations, including CABE with the support of CAPSS, have launched an initiative to help dispel continuous negative public discourse about our schools.
NSBA has enlisted the help of Magic Johnson, Montel Williams and Sal Khan in this effort. NSBA has shared videos and other information with the media and other groups on this effort, which can be seen here.
Astronaut Rick Mastracchio has agreed to be our first Connecticut 'star', an appropriate designation for this space explorer.
Pat Luke, who has served as a member of the State Board of Education, CABE president, NSBA Director, and CABE Senior Staff Associate for Government Relations, has agreed to serve as CABE’s second Stand Up for Public Education representative.
We are hopeful that your districts will also find individuals who will STAND UP FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS! in your communities.
We welcome individual school districts videotaping and getting usable positive quotes for some of the
highprofile "stars" in their communities, who got their start in the public schools!
