School Superintendent Philip Streifer said tonight that those seeking to lobby Gov. Jodi Rell to increase support for education should talk to her Thursday morning when the governor makes a stop at Edgewood School as part of Read Across America.
Rell plans to read to schoolchildren at the school starting at 10:30 a.m.
I don't think most people would be able to enter the school -- there are children to protect, after all -- but outside the building there ought to be some opportunity.
Though we long ago decided to ignore these public relations-type proceedings -- and Lord knows I've steered clear of them for years -- the heat generated by this year's budget crisis might make it more interesting than usual. But maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part.
I hope I'm not the only one there asking Rell about how Bristol will fare. But if I am, what should I ask her about? The commuter rail idea? Education funding? Sunday liquor sales? Route 6? The possibility of a big tax break for journalists?
