When & Where
Connecticut Council for Education Reform
The Connecticut Council for Education Reform (CCER) is a statewide 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that works to close the achievement gap and raise academic outcomes for all students in Connecticut. The achievement gap is the disparity in academic achievement between children from low-income families, children of color, and their peers. We advance our mission by: (1) working directly with Connecticut's lowest-performing districts (the "Alliance Districts"); (2) advocating for state-level policies designed to narrow Connecticut's widest-in-the-nation achievement gap and raise academic outcomes for all students; and (3) increasing public awareness about the need for reform.
