In Connecticut, school funding is tied directly to the town’s tax base? Schools in low-income communities are therefore deprived of important resources compared to schools in wealthier towns.

As you think about your local schools, how have they benefited, or suffered, from this disparity in funding? How do you imagine that impacts student achievement? Attendance/absentee rates? Graduation rates? Opportunities for college admissions? Career opportunities as an adult?
