Charter School Advocates Call For Fair Funding

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – Advocates of charter schools in Connecticut gathered at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford Wednesday to call for fair funding. They say an average of $4,000 less per student per year is spent on charter schools, compared to traditional public schools.

With the Connecticut Supreme Court poised to hear an appeal of a superior court judge’s ruling that found the state’s funding system for public schools unconstitutional, advocates say now is the time to fix the system.

Teachers’ union AFT Connecticut accuses charter school advocates of pushing a special interest agenda.
