Education Action Team
The Education Action Team aims to inform the community about threats to public education and to identify action steps that promote respect, fairness, opportunity, and funding for all students.
Our priority for the 2021 legislative session was to override the Governor’s veto of the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future. On February 12, 2021, the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future became law. Public school students will benefit from a more adequate, equitable, and targeted funding formula that will improve the lives and schools of Marylanders. This legislation will ensure our public education system is strengthened in five key areas:
- Early Childhood Education
- College and Career Readiness Pathways
- High Quality and Diverse
- Additional resources for At-Risk Populations
- Accountability of spending
The Education team is part of Strong Schools Maryland, a major advocate of the Blueprint.We will continue to lobby and advocate with Strong Schools Maryland as the plan is put into practice.
Thanks to all of you who lent support with emails and phone calls to legislators.*
