Mark Fopeano is the Program Manager at Dwight Hall at Yale.  Like all of us he knows the hard decisions that the legislature has to make in order to balance our budget.  He also knows that you need to also understand which programs are good investments and will save money in the long run.  He advocates for after school programs in which the data proves that a small current investment in our youth today allows for a more stable and equitable future for Connecticut.  Please read his perspective at CT Viewpoints.
