My name is Eva Jimenez and I am a proud member of LEAD (Latinos for Educational Advocacy and Diversity). I am a resident of Danbury who went through the public school system. I know firsthand many of the issues faced by our school.
I am writing today to urge the Danbury Democratic delegation to put politics aside and advocate for a more permanent solution to the problem of overcrowding in our city schools. I do understand that many decades of neglect and poor funding are to blame for the crisis we are experiencing today. To have an equitable solution that satisfies our future needs and provides another educational option to our parents, the Democratic delegation must end their opposition to the charter school we are working so hard to open.
