A Town Meeting
Aired Thursday at 8:00 p.m. on CPTV
Education is at the core of Connecticut's economic vitality and quality of life. However, if the quality of that education isn't safeguarded, the caliber of the graduates that Connecticut businesses and the state economy depend upon will suffer. That's why Connecticut Public Television (CPTV), working in conjunction with Emmy-Award winning independent producer Jennifer Boyd and the Connecticut University System, is producing Today's Children in Tomorrow's World: A Town Meeting. The one-hour CPTV Original Production, is hosted by Ann Baldwin.
Today's Children in Tomorrow's World: Town Meeting is a Connecting Our Communities production of CPTV, in partnership with the Connecticut State University System. Additional support is provided by Aetna.
