What's Happening Now

Maryland House Passes the Protect Our Schools Act

“We have a once in a generation opportunity for Maryland to redefine and improve public school success, with less emphasis on testing and a greater focus on closing opportunity gaps,” said Betty Weller, president of the Maryland State Education Association. “We applaud the House for showing leadership in this critical moment and look forward to working with the Senate as they move forward to do the same.”

House of Delegates Passes Less Testing, More Learning Act

“Educators across the state of Maryland applaud the House of Delegates for their leadership in addressing our over-testing crisis. For years, elected officials and school leaders have waited while test after test piled up on the desks of teachers and students, narrowing curriculum and erasing instruction time. This unanimous vote today sends a strong signal that educator voices have been heard and the time for waiting is over. We now turn our attention to the Senate as we work to put in place a commonsense, reasonable safeguard against over-testing," said MSEA President Betty Weller.
