Students team up with educators and parents to Fix the Fund
This past weekend, the March for Our Lives rallies across the country presented profound examples of how the next generation is stepping up — as organizers, activists, and leaders.
Last week in Annapolis, kids were omnipresent at MSEA’s March to Fix the Fund as well. With the opportunity to take a first step in closing the $2.9 billion school underfunding gap by $500 million, many students came to join the more 1,000 Marylanders rallying in front of the State House. Legislators listened, and the Senate passed the Fix the Fund Act unanimously about an hour after the end of the rally. The House of Delegates is expected to take up the bill this week.
Check out some of the highlights below of kids’ participation in the March to Fix the Fund!
Montgomery County student Marjory Pineda and Coppin State student (and soon to be teacher) Kayla Moore delivered two of the most powerful speeches of the rally.
