Guest Speaker

Paul Perzanoski-Superintendent from Brunswick, Maine

Graduate of Central Connecticut State University

Mr. Paul Perzanoski is a 40-year veteran of public education. He has been the superintendent of the Brunswick Public Schools since 2008. Mr. Perzanoski has strong ties to Connecticut. He began his career at E. O. Smith High School in 1983. In addition to several positions he held in various districts in Connecticut, from 2003-2008 Mr. Perzanoski was the superintendent of schools, an assistant superintendent and Director of Special Services in Windham Connecticut. Most importantly, Paul began his educational studies at CCSU. Paul received his M.S. in Special Education and his B. A. in Psychology and Speech Pathology at CCSU.

Diane Ravitch, national leader against corporate reform of education in the United States, honored Mr. Perzanoski in her daily education blog because of his response to the Maine’s governor attack on public schools. Perzanoski stated, “There comes a time when you have to stand up and say enough is enough. Our educators work harder now than they ever had before, and their reward for it is additional unfunded mandates and then political bashing based on whatever statistics they choose to use and the cliché of the day.” Perzanoski continued, “We don’t have to put up with this,” he said about his message to staff. “We have a voice. We need to use it. We need to stand up as one.

Dr. Ravitch wrote, “This man should get a gold star for courage. Let’s thank him for using his voice and speaking truth to power”.
