Bert Mozealous: Republican Candidate for Board of Education

Retired teacher says young people North Haven's most valuable asset.

Mozealous, 62, is a retired teacher with two grown sons who both graduated from North Haven High School. In his 28 years as a resident, Mozealous has been active in the community in a variety of roles, from Boy Scout volunteer to youth football coach. He has been board of education secretary the past two years, and during his tenure as a teacher he served many years as local association president and chief contract negotiator.

As a veteran educator and parent whose own children are products of the North Haven school system, Mozealous said he feels he has a lot to offer as a prospective board member. He said having a board strongly focused on fiscal responsibility and smart decision making is especially
crucial in tough economic times.

“The board of education must make use of the resources we have available to provide a quality education for all students,” Mozealous said. “The challenge is to continue to grow our educational system into one of the most respected in the state. It is important that the board
supports our administrators in making the right decisions for the town and its most valuable assets for the future: our young people.”

I would like to see each and every candidate for the BOE respond by stating their understanding of and position on NCLB. Do they support CT applying for a waiver? If CT is granted the waiver which we have applied for and taken legal action to obtain, how do the candidates expect for it to be fully implemented by the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year? What are their positions on standardized testing? How do they propose to cover the costs associated with meeting NCLB's testing standards and requirements? What is North Haven's level of student performance?
