What’s happening in your school?

CEA has once again teamed up with AFT Connecticut and WFSB TV 3 to highlight issues facing Connecticut teachers and public education today.

We hope you will take a few minutes to complete this survey and share your views on a number of important issues including the physical condition of your school building, disruptive student behavior, and the age at which children should start kindergarten.

Take the Survey  ›

The survey is totally anonymous. You will not be asked to identify yourself or your local. The survey timeline is short. You only have until Wednesday to complete it.

Channel 3 will use the anonymous results to report on issues facing public education. If you missed the TV reports from the first survey in November, click here.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on important issues impacting our profession.
