To the Editor:
We need leadership that will not only pave roads but pave a path for our children's future. Trumbull's eighth grade Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) tests ranked 20 out of 20, the very bottom, when compared to our District Reference Group. How did this happen? For the past six years the Republican majority accepted the status quo, or less, for schools and we now feel the painful results of the 'less than status quo' approach. Teachers are short-changed with minimal professional development opportunities and little resources, both restricting advancement and innovation. The Town's image is lessened; worse, our children are left with a lesser quality education than others.
