About me

        Gregory Smith fights for the rights of students. A former teacher in this state's public and private schools, he knows better than anyone what districts can and cannot do. Parents rely on his counsel and guidance. He speaks for them to the superintendent. He argues for them to the board of education. He acts for them, when talk fails, in Connecticut's state and federal courts.
