Connecticut’s largest teachers union Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the state, seeking an injunction to stop $500 million in education spending cuts that came into effect as the state’s budget impasse drags on.
In its lawsuit filed in Hartford Superior Court, the Connecticut Education Association said the reductions in school funding under an executive order signed by Gov. Dannel Malloy in July would jeopardize the ability of school districts to provide a quality education.
“Why pick on the teachers” Said union rep Daisey Smalls, “Earning 100k a year for working seven hours a day nine months a year and retiring at 50 is the new normal”
One has to ask why overtaxed CT is going broke with the luxury houses lining the coast and NYC millionaire weekender homes being a large part of the culture.
