Clark School Press Conference – Video/Text


Hartford, CT attempted to convert a neighborhood school into a charter school against parents wishes. To placate the parents they formed a committee and allowed two parents to participate. A number of participants then attempted to steam-roll over the parents through threats and intimidation to get the charter school of their choice installed.

I was hired to assist the parents in demanding more information, choices in programs, and alternatives. Ultimately, the parents and community rejected the proposed companies as unrealistic and not in line with their wishes for their children.

So Hartford shut the school and forced the children to attend other area schools.
