Education System Improvements...

Education is extremely important. As mayor I will:

  • Work to insure talented administrators who will be dedicated to New London
  • As an ex-officio member of the BOE attend meetings and suggest initiatives
  • Help define the role of the BOE and the Superintendent - strengthen the BOE
  • Insure greater participation by our dedicated teachers
  • Combat discipline problems in our schools by defining misbehavior and appropriate action
  • Strengthen our oversight of the budget, not only the $40M appropriated, but the $10M in grants
  • Take strong action to improve Math and Reading scores
  • Evaluate the need for more social workers in the system to help distressed families
  • Work to combine pay roll, finance, and other functions to improve efficiencies and enable educators to educate
