New Haven, CT – Mayor Toni Harp, Hartford State Representative Doug McCrory, and Connecticut NAACP President Scot X. Esdaile announced Monday morning that they would join over the growing crowd of over 3,000 parents at a rally in New Haven on Wednesday calling for bold, urgent action to address Connecticut’s failing schools crisis. Monday’s is the latest such announcement of community leaders and elected officials joining over 3,000 parents in pushing for stronger and swifter progress to help 40,000 students trapped in failing schools across the state.
