Meriden kindergarten teacher Maura Graham-Vecellio understands exactly how important early childhood education is to students.

“Early childhood education is crucial because it lays the foundation for the rest of their education,” says Maura. “Students need pre-K education as well as full day kindergarten because there are more than just academic skills involved.”

Make sure early childhood education is 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.
