Stamford school board candidates paint picture of district failing kids during debate

6 min read

STAMFORD — One thing that was clear after a two-hour debate between Stamford Board of Education candidates Thursday is that all of the contenders believe the school district can do better for students and teachers.

Candidates brought up the low percentage of students who can read at the third grade level, troubling graduation rates and decaying and moldy school buildings as examples of how the district has failed.

The debate, held virtually, was hosted by the Stamford Parent-Teacher Council and Cradle to Career.

One of the questions posed during the debate was whether or not the the district is meeting the needs of all students.
