Education advocates are urging voters to find out what candidates for state office plan to do to solve Connecticut's school funding crisis. In September a state Superior Court judge found that Connecticut has "no rational, substantial and verifiable plan to distribute money for education aid."
Michael Morton, communications manager for the nonpartisan Connecticut School Finance Project, said that's a concern that voters need to be thinking about when they go to the polls next week.
"We want to make sure that those voters have researched the candidates' positions and understand what exactly the school finance system looks like currently in Connecticut and what can be done to improve it," he explained.
Information about the school finance system is available on the Connecticut School Finance Project website at ctschoolfinance.org.
