Hartford Courant Editorial: “Gov. Lamont is Working to Keep Kids Safe and In School”
Hartford Courant: “Lamont is Sticking to His Goal”
In a recent editorial, the Hartford Courant praised Gov. Ned Lamont for his plan “to do everything [he] can to keep kids in the classroom safely.”
“Nothing compares to a great teacher in a classroom,” said Gov. Lamont.
“He’s right. And top educators in Connecticut — who work to keep children safe — agree with him,” wrote the Courant.
The Courant also highlighted how Gov. Lamont announced the state would distribute 670,000 at-home rapid tests to schools and child care providers across Connecticut to help safely keep schools open.
Gov. Lamont’s common-sense leadership during the pandemic has led to high vaccination rates among K-12 school employees and across the state, along with one of the highest overall percentages of vaccinated residents in the country.
“Gov. Ned Lamont continues to put Connecticut families, children, and teachers first with his strong pandemic response,” said DGA Deputy Communications Advisor Sam Newton. “By getting educators vaccinated and distributing COVID tests, Gov. Lamont is keeping schools safe and open, so kids can continue to receive the first-class education Connecticut is known for.”
