Free pre-K part of Danbury mayoral challenger’s school plan

The News-Times Insider May 22, 2019

DANBURY — Free pre-kindergarten programs and a commission to study the needs of the city’s bulging school system are part of a plan by a Democratic mayoral candidate to bolster public education.

“Danbury has had the lowest per-pupil spending of any other town or city in Connecticut for the past three years,” said Chris Setaro, who is challenging GOP Mayor Mark Boughton in November. “Blue Ribbon schools in the city have everything to do with the dedication of the district’s talented and passionate educators who do their best every day despite not getting the resources they need.”
