Trumbull’s former Board of Education chair, Stephen Wright, will be addressing national education issues this week during the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) 2014 Annual Legislative Policy Forum in Arlington, Va. The forum is March 13 and 14.
Wright, who chose not to run for re-election to Trumbull’s Board of Education during the last election, is still involved in both state and national education issues. In 2011, Gov. Dannel Malloy appointed him to the Connecticut State Board of Education, where he serves on the Policy Committee and Finance Committee. He is a member of the Government Affairs Committee for the National State Boards of Education (NASBE) and also serves as a member of its Achievement Gap Subcommittee.
