Long-time readers of Eduflack will notice that I have been writing a great deal about Connecticut lately. In my professional life, I’m fortunate enough to work with a terrific education advocacy group in the Nutmeg State — the Connecticut Coalition for Achievement Now.
ConnCAN’s mission is to fight so that every child — regardless of race, family income, or zip code — has access to great public schools. By focusing on the achievement gaps and pushing for real solutions, ConnCAN is committed to better schools, better and better supported educators, and better outcomes.
So obviously much of what appears on Eduflack is often seen through the lens of education improvement in Connecticut. That’s why I am happy to announce I’m now writing a new blog focused on education reform in Connecticut — Yes Conn, We Can.
What’s even more exciting is that Yes Conn, We Can is now part of a family of blogs found at the New Haven Register. Yes Conn, We Can is one of four community blogs currently included in the Register’s Connecticut Blogs section.
From time to time, I’ll repost some Yes Conn, We Can posts here on Eduflack, if they are particularly relevant to the national education discussion.
