by Categorized: 2014 Election Date:

\"aeiGov. Dannel P. Malloy will be the featured speaker today at the conservative American Enterprise Institute to discuss the \”dos and don\’ts\” of education reform and \”the lessons from Connecticut.\”

The lefty blogs don\’t like it one bit.

Here\’s what the AEI has to say about today\’s event:

Since taking office in Connecticut in 2011, Governor Dannel Malloy (D-CT) has made K–12 school reform a centerpiece of his agenda, calling education “the civil rights issue of our time.” To date, the state has passed key legislation surrounding teacher accountability, charter schooling, and turning around underperforming schools. At the same time, Connecticut has one of the nation’s largest academic achievement gaps, and Governor Malloy has faced pushback from teachers unions on his efforts surrounding teacher evaluation.
