Join the March to Protect Our Schools

Protect public education with hundreds of educators and NEA President Lily Eskelsen García on March 13 at MSEA’s march and lobby night! We have one simple message for legislators: Protect Our Schools.

We’ll ask them to:

  • Pass the Less Testing, More Learning Act of 2017. Help protect time to learn! Ask lawmakers to set a 2% cap on annual instructional time used for mandated standardized testing.
  • Pass the Protect Our Schools Act of 2017. Stand up to the State Board! Help ensure that Maryland’s ESSA plan isn’t just a retread No Child Left Behind. Resist the State Board’s disastrous plan to forcibly convert public schools to charter schools and redirect precious school funding to failed voucher programs.
  • Defeat Gov. Hogan’s privatization agenda! The governor wants to lower standards for charter schools, increase charter funding to eclipse that of traditional public schools, and fund private school vouchers with your taxpayer dollars.

Now is the perfect time to stand up for what you believe in—public education and the rights of students, families, and communities to have the best neighborhood schools and the best opportunities to succeed in life. 

Join us in the March to Protect our Schools. We’ll meet at MSEA Headquarters (140 Main Street in Annapolis) at 5 p.m. on March 13. After a short speaking program, we’ll begin the March around 5:45 p.m. and head up to the State House to see legislators and ask them to protect our schools. RSVP by filling out the form below.
