Cross post from Jon Pelto's Wait What?

"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy or perhaps both. A people who mean to be their own governor must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives."  - James Madison

With three Freedom of Information requests pending with the Connecticut Department of Education for information that is undoubtedly public and no sign of a response from Commissioner Stefan Pryor or his staff, the Education Department has left  no option but to file a complaint with the Freedom of Information Commission.

Despite a campaign promise to make government more transparent, the Malloy Administration continues to engage in an unprecedented effort to undermine the independence, sanctity and effectiveness of Connecticut's Freedom of Information law.  However, as of now, the law remains clear and concise - the public has a right to public records.

The records that have been requested, including the mysterious unapproved copy of the Operations Agreement for the new Windham Magnet School, are unquestionably public records.  However, weeks after a simple FOI request, the Department has been unwilling to turn over the records.

For that reason, a complaint against Commissioner Pryor and his agency has been filed.

Updates will be provided as information becomes available.
