“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” –Nelson Mandela
Our founding fathers believed that public education was essential for democracy. Despite this, Maryland is under-funding education to the tune of nearly $3 billion, an issue on which 70% of Marylanders agree.
That’s why funding education, and making sure Maryland’s schools and teachers are the best in the nation, is a focus of my campaign. As your senator, I will focus on three major facets of education in Maryland today:
- Closing the funding gap in Maryland
- Education equity
- Universal pre-kindergarten (for all four year olds)
