BOE Budget Hearings
Students, teachers, families and communities deserve more attention paid to our public schools!
Without the needed funding our schools, teachers, and students fall further and further behind.
How can our schools compete with those in jurisdictions whose leaders support their schools?
Without adequate funding:
- We won’t be able to hire the best to teach our kids.
- Qualified teachers will opt to leave for more support and more respect.
- Our larges class sizes have gotten larger and continue to grow, depriving students and placing overwhelming burdens on teachers.
Our economy is improving. Our student population is growing with nearly 1,400 new students and virtually no new teaching positions. Doing even less than status quo will not make Anne Arundel a leader in education or the state. We are now officially the lowest paid urban local in the state. Urge the BOE members to be part of the solution and Raise Anne Arundel.
