Oppose SB 1166 - School Climate Policy
Please Urge Your State Senator to Vote "No" on SB 1166
SB 1166 AN ACT CONCERNING IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CONNECTICUT SCHOOL CLIMATE POLICY
The Connecticut Catholic Public Affairs Conference has serious concerns about SB 1166 which has been approved by the Connecticut General Assembly’s Education Committee and will soon be considered by the State Senate. Although the legislation would not impact Catholic schools, it would very likely impact the ability of students from Catholic or other religious families to live out their faith in a public school setting.
If enacted, SB 1166 will make every local board of education, every student, and every parent to eventually submit to supposedly locally established standards based on the guidelines promoted by a private, national organization known as the National School Climate Center. These guidelines are referred to as the National School Climate Standards.
