Education: A focal point in first gubernatorial debate

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Tom Foley spent more than 15 minutes talking about education in their first gubernatorial debate last night at the Norwich Free Academy.

When asked about his tenure comment, Malloy apologized to teachers: “I shouldn’t have said it. I apologize for saying it.”
