In Connecticut, students and parents are concerned about vandalism at New Britain High School following a viral TikTok challenge. They reached out for an emergency summit with U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal and state Attorney General William Tong.
Gov. Kathy Hochul said the state has ended its opposition to a 2006 ruling from New York's highest court that required billions more to be allocated each year to schools to address inequities in the education system.
Connecticut cities and towns have joined the state’s teachers' unions to push state lawmakers to fund improved ventilation systems in schools. They said too many schools in the state have bad air quality.
