Connecticut’s educational system has gone through a long process of growth and change. A student need but look around to see that the process still continues. The influences upon the system, and its influence upon Connecticut life will be determined by social, political, and economic factors. Students should realize that they themselves are directly involved within this ever-changing educational system. The connecting link in the various educational styles of Connecticut’s history has been the attempt to provide the best instruction suitable to the time. This should always be regarded as the main concern in any new developments related to the educational process.
