Rally held at Henry Abbott Technical High School

The Danbury community held a rally yesterday in support of quality education for all children.


Parents, students, educators, administrators and civic leaders held a "walk-in" at three events in Connecticut; part of coordinated national day of action at approximately 2,000 schools in 87 cities.  Assembled outside main entrance to Henry Abbott Technical High School in Danbury, the group "walked-in" to the together.  More than 500 people turned out for the event.


The event was meant to demonstrate success at the technical high school, as part of the growing educational justice movement. The goal was to highlight the benefits of fairly-funded public schools for all children and send a message that there are better choices than cuts to education services. 


AFT Connecticut Communications Coordinator Matt O'Connor says all students deserve quality education, and ways to provide that were discussed during the event.
