It’s official. It came right from the horse’s mouth.
Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin plans to balance the city’s budget on the backs of its schoolchildren, a clear majority of whom are Latino.
Gov. Dannel Malloy had no sooner proposed to increase state education funding by $230 million, including $38.1 million to Hartford, as the neediest school district of all, when Bronin told a CT Mirror reporter at Malloy’s budget address that he would raid the school system’s share of that money and use it to hold off the city’s plunge into bankruptcy.
