Fully Fund Education In The Great State Of Maryland
Dear State Legislators, As we know, education is the great equalizer. Education is the pathway for many out of poverty. Education represents America’s best chance to regain its prominence in the world. Now is not the time to reduce funding to our educational systems. Now is the time to re-invest in the future of our great State. Now is the time to show all citizens that you value their dreams, their hopes and their aspirations for a better life for them and their children. A fully funded educational system places the children of this great state on a foundation to compete nationally and globally with children of countries such as South Korea, China, India, and Japan.
This year join the thousands of parents, educators, students, community, and faith based leaders who have signed this petition to save our schools. Please support full funding for education and help full the dreams of all children across the State.
"A world-class education is the single most important factor in determining not just whether our kids can compete for the best jobs but whether America can out-compete countries around the world. America's business leaders understand that when it comes to education, we need to up our game. That's why we’re working together to put an outstanding education within reach for every child"
-PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, JULY 18, 2011
