HARTFORD - Gov. Jodi Rell announced a plan to close the achievement gap between rich and poor students in Connecticut.

Rell hopes an education panel can solve the issue in 10 years.

The Commission says one key step will require all students to pass the statewide CAPT test their senior year in high school.

The group also calls for a better way to track low income students' progress.

It is also recommending tying teachers and administrators promotions to the success of under-performing students.
