    From the Desk of Matt Hornbeck - Welcome Back!

    If you think good schools improve the lives of families, keep families in the City, increase the earning power of skilled graduates, and increase your property values, we need you for the next 180 days to put the pressure on your elected officials to fully fund the Kirwan Commission recommendations.  According to our partners at Strong Schools Maryland (https://www.strongschoolsmaryland.org), “more than half of all Maryland schools, (822 out of 1,412) are now considered to be schools meeting the standard of concentrated poverty.  Maryland schools are tasked with off-setting the negative impacts of poverty without the resources to provide high quality, research based solutions.” 

    The 2019 legislative in Annapolis is over in 180 days.  You can make a difference.  Call your legislator, visit your legislator, write an opinion to submit to the Baltimore Sun, and get at least two other people to join you at upcoming rallies for public education in Annapolis.  An important “down payment” is on the ballot.  Please vote to Fix the Fund by voting “Yes on 1” on Tuesday, November 6th.  “Yes on 1” ensures that the casino money promised to schools years ago will finally get to schools.  Go to Strong Schools Maryland to learn more about the Kirwan recommendations and why universal pre-kindergarten, high-quality vocational training, more funding for higher-need neighborhoods, pay that will attract the very best teachers, and much more is going to make Maryland competitive again.
