The Maryland Education Coalition is dedicated to raising the academic achievement of students in Maryland public schools by  promoting adequate funding  and systemic accountability for improving results.

Credo

 

We work to promote successful education outcomes for all students, regardless of jurisdiction, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, English language learner status, or disability. We believe Maryland must fully fund public education programs to realize its constitutional guarantee that all children in the state have access to a "a thorough and efficient system of public education".

 

The purpose of adequate and equitable funding of public education is to provide every student with:

 

  • Comprehensive educational opportunities and supports that fully prepares students for college, career, and for meaningful civic and social engagement;

  • High-quality academic instruction and social-emotional support that responds to students’ individual needs;

  • Safe and modern school facilities that are conducive to 21st century teaching and learning; and

  • A safe, respectful, and welcoming school climate.

 

We support efforts to hold all publicly funded schools accountable for promoting high standards and improving student performance.

 

While financial resources alone will not guarantee that all students graduate career or college ready, any failure to provide the necessary state and local funding creates obstacles that prevent students from realizing these goals.

 

We strongly support requirements for local governments to maintain their part of the partnership with the state to fund the public schools.

 

Access to a high-quality education ensures each child the opportunity to succeed, thereby enhancing Maryland’s long-term prosperity.

OUR VISION

  • All students will have equal education opportunities - regardless of jurisdiction, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, English language learner status, ability or disability.

  • The State of Maryland must fully fund public education programs to realize its constitutional guarantee that all children in the state have access to a "a thorough and efficient system of public education".

  • All publicly funded schools will be accountable for promoting high standards and improving student performance.
