Capitol Report: Teach Rock partners with state; How snobby is CT?

Capitol Report

Whether he’s playing piano or just getting his groove on, you don’t have to convince Governor Ned Lamont about the importance of music?

That’s why the Gov. is teaming up with Bruce Springsteen guitarist Steven Van Zandt to launch a statewide partnership called “Teach Rock”, aimed at keeping kids engaged in school.

Van Zandt founded the program 15 years ago, and it helps teachers in Connecticut engage with students through music.

Connecticut is the first statewide partnership with Teach Rock.

Connecticut is known for having some pretty ‘ritzy’ zip codes. And along with that comes a reputation for “snobbery”. Here’s a shock: A new survey finds the Constitution State is one of the snobbiest in the nation.

Connecticut came in third place, right behind fellow New Englanders Massachusetts and Vermont. In fact, most people find all of new England pretty snobby.

The study was based on the percent of the population with a bachelor’s degree, percent of degree earners with a degree in arts and humanities, number of Ivy League colleges, and, most important, gallons of wine consumed yearly.
