Through my time with Mission Data I have had many opportunities to meet with and talk to the staff at CTL. All have one common goal and that is to provide better education opportunities for our children. Each person on their staff is knowledgeable, professional and exactly who I, as a parent, would want to guide my child's school years. With a child in the public school system, I can see first hand the need to connect with Teachers and provide them with the support and tools they need to teach well. In addition, CTL's attention to literacy and the arts are qualities that make this organization the top notch entity that it is. I see no value in NOT having these things represented well in our schools.

I am proud to have CTL in our community. As an avid reader, I applaud CTL's literacy models, which promote the methods and strategies that create sustainable success for both students and teachers. CTL is a true asset to out commonwealth and the schools that serve it. Congratulations to CTL for its dedicated workers and outstanding programs!

I first encountered the Collaborative when I was in search of expertise for reporting on local education issues. I soon learned that the staff there shared my belief that students are not the PRODUCTS of schools, but their customers. In the past several years, CTL has been our most helpful and complete resource on education matters. The staff fully understands the needs and reach of television news, particularly in the ability to speak through our telecasts to parents and students in a language they can understand.
