Vote for next CuriousCT story
The next voting round for CuriousCT, The Day's initiative in which readers can submit questions and then vote on which ones reporters will answer, is now open. The topic of this voting round is education.
Vote below to help select the reader-submitted question The Day should investigate next:
- I would like to know what defines "special education" needs in our public schools. It appears a greater percentage of students are falling into that category and the associated costs are challenging.
- Why can't local school districts better link their school calendars? There is some universality about when they begin (either before or after Labor Day) but the last day varies so much!
- How many New London children actually go to the Williams School at Connecticut College using the monies from the sale of Bulkeley Junior High School?
Submit a question to be considered for a future voting round:
