To the Editor:
Connecticut has the widest education achievement gap in the country. But Kim Rose is leading the charge to change that. Recognizing that the road to high achievement begins before school, Kim Rose helped create 1,000 new pre-K school readiness slots statewide. She also supported initiatives to improve literacy in kindergarten through grade three and provide assistance to chronically under-performing schools — while giving our dedicated and hardworking local educators the tools they need to succeed.
