The Maryland Education Coalition advocates for adequate, equitable funding and systematic accountability in Maryland’s public schools and it's 900,000 students.
MEC joins the Blueprint for Maryland's Future Coalition to
DEMAND MARYLAND LEGISLATORS TO CLOSE
THE MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR SCHOOL FUNDING GAP
Maryland’s public schools are underfunded by $2.9 billion annually. That’s an average of $2 million per school per year!
Last year, the General Assembly took a first step toward closing the gap by securing $1.1 billion to help our schools and students over the next three years. It’s a great start—but our work is far from over.
We’re fighting for all students by demanding legislation in 2020 to increase investments in career technical education, pre-kindergarten, early interventions for struggling learners, educator pay, students in communities with concentrated poverty, English language learner supports, and special education programs and services.

Our schools are underfunded. Our students have growing needs. An out-of-date funding formula just doesn’t address the needs of our students and schools.
The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future means $1.1 billion for valuable student programs and increased salaries and staffing over the next three years. But that’s just a start.
Our kids, our schools, and our community need YOU at our Blueprint for Maryland’s Future Community Forum.
