Milly Arciniegas, founder of the Hartford Parent University, works in the community to help empower parents and encourage them to take control over their children’s education. Her involvement in the city of Hartford also brings her into contact with residency issues within and outside the Hartford district, where she feels that district lines should not dictate a child’s future in his or her early education. Milly recognizes a significant difference between the quality of schools in some districts versus others. She believes that a lack of adequate funding is largely to blame for these inequalities. Milly plans to continue being involved with residency issues and is optimistic about changes that could happen in the near future.
