Petition Statement

Bridgeport Board of Education: Our students deserve real leadership. Don't renew Paul Vallas' contract!
There are currently 114 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

When it comes to running Bridgeport's schools, Paul Vallas gets an F.

Paul Vallas' brand of corporate school reform uses our schools to create profit, not educate. Vallas has laid off 50 teachers, cut supply budgets in half, and wants even steeper cuts, all while being paid more than $230,000 a year, and signing $13 million worth of no bid contracts with his friends and former colleagues. Vallas also spends much of his time consulting for other school districts and states, including an $18 million contract with the City of Indianapolis and a $1 million dollar contract with the Illinois state Department of Education.

Paul Vallas has failed Bridgeport's schools. It is time for him to go.
