Significant change in the way schools are funded COULD be on the way! Sign this petition in support of the CCJEF (Connecticut Coalition for Justice in Educational Funding) in the CCJEF vs. Rell lawsuit if you would like to see equity in funding for all schools in Connecticut, regardless of urban, suburban or rural locations.
