CEA Running Radio Ad Urging Veto Override

CEA is urging legislators, who overwhelmingly supported and passed An Act Concerning Classroom Safety and Disruptive Student Behavior, to override the governor’s veto.

Without an override, Governor Malloy’s veto ensures that more youth will wind up in the criminal justice system rather than having their problems and needs addressed in a proactive manner.

Listen to a CEA radio ad now on the air.

 

And then contact your legislators and urge them to override the veto to ensure safe classrooms for all students and teachers.

Please contact your legislators and urge them to override the governor’s veto of SB 453, An Act Concerning Classroom Safety and Disruptive Behavior, now called Public Act 18-89.

The bill

  • Enhances classroom safety for all students and teachers
  • Provides appropriate support, not punitive discipline, for students who harm others
  • Reduces discriminatory discipline and discourages the school-to-prison pipeline
  • Complies with and does not preempt the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
