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.
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.
