    From the Desk of Matt Hornbeck

    Raise your voice!  Please take a moment to let state lawmakers know that strong schools matter to you, matter to Baltimore City and matter to Maryland.  Last week, the Kirwan Commission announced that a statewide school funding analysis and report due next month will be delayed. Please let members of the Kirwan Commission know that if they are going to delay the report, they MUST get it right. Go to the Strong Schools Maryland website to send emails directly to the elected members of the Kirwan Commission (see link below). Tell them that they must address the 9 Building Blocks of a world class education system (see link below) including vocational pipelines, funding for at-risk students, additional funds for areas of concentrated poverty, the creation of a statewide community school program (every school needs a Ms. Swann!), high quality options for students from birth to five such as preschool for 3 and 4 year olds and more.  Let's keep the pressure up and make sure the Kirwan Commission produces a report that will create a world class education system for all of Maryland’s students.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED AND GET INVOLVED, please contact me at principalhornbeck@gmail.com.
