AN ABSOLUTE WIN for Maryland Public School Children!
The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future
Since its inception in 2017, Strong Schools Maryland has built a sprawling network of tens of thousands of individual grassroots supporters focused on securing the 2020 passage and 2021 veto override of the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future, a law dedicating financial resources and critical policies to create a world-class system of public education in the state.
Now that the Blueprint is law, Strong Schools Maryland has shifted its mission to continue working with supporters across the state to monitor the implementation of the law; advocate for legislative and regulatory policy changes to further educational equity; and build the technical capacity of everyday Marylanders to hold state and local officials accountable to their responsibilities. (Statement adapted from Strong Schools Maryland website).
The Tour for Maryland’s Future has taken the Strong Schools Maryland team across the state this summer visiting all 24 Maryland Counties before the end of the summer.
The group suggests forming a team of ten is the best way for those passionate about education equity and effecting the immense potential of the Blueprint in their community to get involved. Visit the Strong Schools Maryland website to learn more about the 5 pillars of the Blueprint as well as how to host a house meeting with friends and family or to invite a Strong Schools Maryland staff member to deliver a training to your organization.
