Successful learning is measured by more than test scores. Newtown teacher Karen King understands this.

“Every child I have in my class comes with their own set of needs and test scores don’t tell the whole story,” says Karen. “We have to find ways to measure that will include that information but will include other information that is pertinent to teacher evaluations.”

Make sure that multiple measures of success are a part of education reform.

AFT CT (American Federation of Teachers Connecticut) is committed to improving the quality of education for every child in the state. Education reform issues like teacher tenure, teacher certification, teacher evaluations, early childhood education, charter schools, school funding and more need input from all educators. PreK-12 teachers, paraprofessionals and school related personnel are working every day to improve learning and help students to grow. From urban schools in Connecticut, such as Hartford, New Britain, New Haven and Meriden, to suburban schools, such as, Bloomfield, Simsbury and Waterford,  to regional school districts, our members are working to provide quality education.
