WHAT IS THE SHEFF MOVEMENT?

The Sheff Movement is a coalition of parents, students, educators, and community members working to assure access to quality integrated education for every child in the Hartford region. Our coalition has an extensive track record of success illustrative of its past, present, and future capacity to effect change. A deep commitment to this work is our greatest strength. We have been meeting monthly for approximately 20 years (among other things), demonstrating a sustained community commitment to actualizing Sheff v. O'Neill's vision of quality integrated education.
