Statement from CEA President Sheila Cohen on the Proposed House Democratic Budget Plan


June 29, 2017


We are shocked and disappointed to see that the proposed House Democratic budget punishes teachers for a problem created by the state—the broken promise to provide the state's share of teacher retirement funding.Connecticut's active and retired teachers have paid their share—especially compared to other states—and should not be the scapegoats for the state's failure.

Lawmakers cannot balance the state budget on the backs of teachers. Connecticut's teachers are dedicated professionals who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.


The Connecticut Education Association represents 43,000 teachers in Connecticut.
