NEA President Visits Bridgeport CommPACT Schools
NEA President Dennis Van Roekel heard encouraging reports from teachers, parents and principals during a visit yesterday to two Bridgeport CommPACT schools. The new school reform experiment in Connecticut’s neediest cities may be the best hope for solving some of the vexing problems of America’s urban schools.
CommPACT, headed by the University of Connecticut’s Neag School of Education, gives individual schools a significant degree of authority to transform themselves from within – a radical shift from the traditional top-down organization of most school systems.
