Contact Your Legislators TODAY: Support Public Education

The battle over education funding is in high gear in Annapolis (click here to learn more about the major issues in education this session). The governor proposed a 1% inflationary increase, but also proposed shifting half of the cost of teacher’s pensions to the counties and Baltimore City. Just this week, the Senate released a Doomsday Budget that includes cuts of over $200 million to education.

In order for our schools to have the funding necessary to ensure that children receive a quality education, we need you to contact your legislators and ask them to support public education by:

•    SUPPORTING new revenues for education and opposing the Doomsday Budget;
•    STOPPING THE SHIFT of pension costs to local school boards or governments;
•    MAINTAINING the 1% inflation allowance to the Thornton education formula in order to maintain the quality of education and avoid harmful teacher layoffs; and
•    PROTECTING children in less wealthy jurisdictions.
