From fighting for more equitable funding at the state level to advocating for strong contracts and adequate funding at the local level, MSEA and your local union have your back.
Decisions about schools and what’s best for students should be made by the educators who know them best. MSEA fights to make sure that educators have a seat at the table and a voice in the policies that impact our students and our professions.
We stand with our most vulnerable students, colleagues, and communities to end the inequities based on race, wealth, opportunity, and other factors.
We advocate for the resources, policies, and programs that keep schools a safe and healthy place for all educators and students.
MSEA has a long history of working to ensure that more time is spent on learning, instruction, and developing well-rounded skills and less on mandated standardized testing that drains hours and excitement from the school day.
Our schools should be centers of communities, not centers of profit. We defend our public schools from voucher schemes, corporate for-profit charter chains, and local efforts to privatize educator jobs.
On May 7, the governor vetoed the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future, the bill to end the underfunding of our schools and increase staffing, salaries, and equitable opportunities and resources for all students no matter their zip code.
On June 26, Governor Hogan proposed $345 million in cuts to public school funding, endangering the health and success of Maryland’s educators and students. When $111 million of those cuts came before the Board of Public Works, the Comptroller and Treasurer stopped them.
