NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - An advocacy group has launched a video ad campaign promoting charter schools in Connecticut.

The Coalition for Every Child released its latest video ad Thursday. It features a woman speaking about how a charter school helped her son with muscular dystrophy reach his potential.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/1BDkNeQ ) that the ad is funded by Families for Excellent Schools, a pro-charter school lobbying organization.

Families for Excellent Schools has funded other charter school-related efforts, such as an ad campaign against New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and organizing parents and rallies in Bridgeport to promote charter schools.

Kara Neidhardt, Connecticut state director for Families for Excellent Schools, said expanding access to public charter schools must be a priority this year for the legislature.
