Senator Slossberg’s Ongoing Listening Tour With Local Teachers

slossberg-160412State Senator Gayle Slossberg (representing Milford, Orange, West Haven & Woodbridge) has been engaged in a listening tour with local teachers, meeting with teachers from our area and neighboring towns. Senator Slossberg has been communicating with them about the state of public education in Connecticut and learning how she can work with them to continuously improve it. Her latest listening tour meeting was in Orange, Connecticut and was covered the latest press release from the State Senator’s office.

ORANGE, CT—Senator Gayle Slossberg, Senate Chair of the Education Committee, continued her local teacher listening tour with a meeting in Orange.

“Evidence has shown that an overreliance on standardized tests, particularly the SBAC, is not improving the education of Connecticut’s students and may even be detracting from it,” said Senator Slossberg, Senate Chair of the Education Committee. “Few people have better insight on what is going on in our classrooms than the teachers who are on the front lines of public education. I will continue meeting with and working alongside our state’s educators to improve our state’s relationship with our teachers and improve the educational future for all Connecticut students.”

Teachers were eager to thank Senator Slossberg for working to pass Senate Bill 380, which would decouple Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test scores from teacher evaluations. Educators from across Connecticut have pointed to mounting evidence that using SBAC scores in teacher evaluations detracts from classroom learning and does not improve student educations. Senate Bill 380 passed out of the General Assembly’s Education Committee 23-10, and now awaits action by the state senate.

Another subject of conversation was a law Slossberg worked to pass last year, which eliminates the requirement that 11th-grade students take the SBAC test and required instead that they take the SAT at no cost to the students and their families. This law was crafted based on a survey of more than 1,100 K-12 teachers in Connecticut.

Nice work, Gayle!
