Connecticut's teachers union is vowing to strengthen the public school system in the state.
The Connecticut Education Association, along with state legislators and educators, held a news conference in Hartford Tuesday to discuss their new voter survey.
The results outlined the growing concerns with funding, teacher shortages, teacher burnout, student mental health and student behavioral issues in public schools.
Voters say they want education to be the top priority this legislative session.
"We really appreciate CEA and all the information that they've provided to ensure that we're moving this forward in the direction that is going to be positive for all our students, for our educators and for our families of Connecticut," said Rep. Jeff Currey.
Eight-hundred Connecticut voters participated in the survey from Dec. 6-11.
