Macdonough School was the host site for a panel discussion among this year's gubernatorial candidates held on Tuesday, September 28th.
The forum was moderated by Robert Frahm of the Connecticut Mirror and Tom Monahan of NBC 30 and hosted by ConnCAN (Connecticut Coalition for Achievement Now). ConnCAN chose Macdonough as the venue for the debate because the school has made “exceptional progress” in closing the achievement gap in Middletown.
“We celebrate Macdonough School as one of the success stories in closing the achievement gap in Connecticut,” Johnston said.
He went on to describe Macdonough as “an example of what is possible in public education in Connecticut today.”
