Ms. Croom and other members also met with representatives from the Education Committee. Hot topics discussed were Wrap Around Schools, TRS, CTAE, ESSA, insurance and benefits, teacher retention, and STEM.

It was a productive day for the teachers and politicians. The discussion opened eyes and changed mind for the future, putting the students’ interests first and foremost.
