Connecticut’s state constitution contains a guarantee of the right to an education by stating: “There shall always be free public elementary and secondary schools in the state. The General Assembly shall implement this principle by appropriate legislation.” The General Assembly has delegated the responsibility to educate children to local and regional boards of education. Thus, school board members, although elected locally, are, in fact, agents of the State. In essence, the powers of the school board are granted by state statute and regulation.
