The Capitol Region Education Council (CREC) offers a wide array of cost-effective, high-quality programs and services to meet the educational needs of children and adults in the Capitol Region. Established in 1966, CREC is supported by local, state, federal and private funds. • CREC is one of six Regional Educational Service Centers (RESCs) established under a Connecticut General Statute, which permits local boards of education to establish a RESC as a “public educational authority” for the purpose of “cooperative action to furnish programs and services.”

    6. 6. SHEFF V. O’NEILL 1989: Elizabeth Horton Sheff and other parents file a lawsuit charging that Connecticut's system of separate city and suburban school districts led to racially segregated schools and a violation of their children's rights to equal opportunity. 2008: The State and plaintiffs agree to a new settlement, calling for expanded regional magnet schools and the use of Project Choice to provide a quality, integrated education to all children. It includes the goal that 80% of Hartford parents seeking to send their children to an integrated school will be accommodated.
