For Every Child started this petition to Pledge

Right now, there are 40,000 Connecticut children who attend underperforming schools where the majority of  students cannot read and do math at grade level. Most of them are low-income students or children of color. This is unacceptable. All children deserve the opportunity to get a great education, and they need it now. Connecticut needs expanded access to high-quality public schools for all children.

The solution is straightforward: Continue to open high-performing public schools, fund all public schools equitably, and hold all schools accountable for results while also protecting the flexibility of individual schools to effectively serve the needs of all students, regardless of race, economic status or zip code.

We cannot afford to ignore this crisis any longer. Tell our elected leaders to expand access to Connecticut's high-performing public charter schools.
