Conn. superintendents pitching reform ideas
HARTFORD, Conn.—A group representing Connecticut superintendents is bringing a wide-ranging slate of reform proposals to the state Department of Education.
The Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents is scheduled to present its recommendations Wednesday at the Department of Education's monthly meeting.
The superintendents' group is proposing more than 150 items, ranging from providing all-day kindergarten statewide to replacing open-ended tenure with renewable five-year teaching contracts.
The suggestions come as the state legislature prepares to review several education reform ideas during the 2012 General Assembly session.
The state Board of Education is not scheduled to take action Wednesday on the superintendents' proposals. The superintendents hope the department will adopt some as priorities.
