Gov. Dannel Malloy talked about the achievement gap in his speech Wednesday, and CPTV has a three-part series airing Thursday night on that very subject.
CPTV will premiere "Great Expectations: Raising Educational Achievement" at 8:30 p.m. Thursday (2-9) and the other two parts will follow the same night.
Episode two, at 9 p.m., will highlight New Haven's model teacher development and evaluation system, says a CPTV official.
"Connecticut's public school system is at a crossroads. The gap between
low-income and middle- and upper-income students' scores is called the
achievement gap and Connecticut's is the widest of any state in the
nation," says a release on the series.
The new series will highlight models for creating a
system of education that raises achievement for all," says CPTV. The individual
episodes will be broadcast again on successive Sundays at 12:30 p.m.
beginning February 12.
