MEDIA ADVISORY FOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21: Charter School Parents and Advocates Participate in 'Day of Silence' Demonstration at the State Capitol

Hartford, CTWithout saying a word, our stories will speak for themselves as public charter school parents, students, educators and school leaders participate in a 'Day of Silence' public demonstration at the State Capitol inside the Legislative Office Building on Tuesday, February 21st from 1p.m. to 3 p.m

The purpose of Tuesday’s demonstration is to express to lawmakers that the state budget silences the voices of the charter school community, and that the demands for fair and equitable treatment have fallen on deaf ears. Participants will be demonstrating throughout the Legislative Office Building bearing signs highlighting the various inequities charter schools and their students face.
