Gov. Dannel Malloy's Education Reform Tour made its 11th stop during its circuit Tuesday night in Norwalk.
Malloy, accompanied by Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, addressed a half-full house, with about 350 teachers and parents scattered throughout West Rocks Middle School's auditorium. As a contigency, the school had planned for 800.
"I think [Malloy] was tyring to make it accessible," said Dr. Lynne Morre, principal of West Rocks, about why the school was chosen to host the town hall. "We're on the beaten path here, we already host a number of events here - including those outside of a school setting - and my guess is he would want to make this kind of presentation about education in a school."
