“Governor O’Malley’s already strong record of investing in our students and #1 ranked public schools only improves with the forward-looking budget that he proposed today,” said MSEA President Betty Weller. “Maryland’s students will directly benefit from the full funding of Thornton and the Geographic Cost of Education Index, as well as the additional funding for Maryland Meals for Achievement, which will provide 50,000 students in high-poverty schools with a healthy start to their day. For years, Governor O’Malley and the General Assembly have set a national example for the importance—and long-term benefits—of investing in our schools. We’re proud that educators, parents, and community members have partnered with our elected officials to set Maryland’s students on a path of increased achievement, success, and national recognition.”
