Officials propose to modernize Norwalk public schools

In Norwalk, the Board of Education is taking issue with a new plan that was unveiled by state and city lawmakers. 



They are looking to upgrade and modernize Norwalk's 19 schools. 



Officials gathered at Norwalk's Jefferson Elementary School to announce the Fix-It-First proposal.



It will funnel limited state and city funds into improving existing school buildings rather than putting up expensive new ones.



Officials say all of Norwalk's current schools are in desperate need of repairs, and suffer from electrical, heating, and ventilation issues, among other things. 



They say the Board of Education's current building plan fails to focus on schools equally, leaving many problems, while their plan will allow more to get done with limited funds.
