THE Families First Act

Parents are the first teachers for their children and they, not politicians and government bureaucrats, have the ultimate responsibility for their kids. Connecticut needs a “families first act” to ensure they are front and center when it comes to decisions about their family’s education and healthcare. We will make sure their voice is heard in developing new government policies and decisions that will not place undue stress on families.

THE FAMILIES FIRST ACT

 

We will ensure that families are front and center when it comes to decisions about their family members’ education and health care, while protecting them from fraud and abuse.

  • Require impact statements and reporting on policies affecting children in public schools and childcare settings any time a health emergency or alert is declared
  • Assist all Boards of Education to include all curriculum materials on their websites and to allow for public comment on all agendas
  • Add two legislative appointments to the State Board of Education, which shall be two parents–one from a district with a student population of under 1,000 students K-12 and one from a district with student population of over 3,000 students K-12
  • Ensure mobile crisis services include 24 hour 7 days a week
  • Protect senior citizens from fraud and abuse
