Who We Are

Since 1865, the Maryland State Education Association (MSEA), formerly known as the Maryland State Teachers Association, has been the state's leading voice for public education. Whether we're lobbying for school funding in Annapolis, fighting for civil rights, or making sure every student receives the attention they need and every educator the respect they deserve, our association has been the most successful and powerful force for progress in Maryland.

The simple, symbolic open book above the “e” in our bright logo and its seven pages reflect the contributions that each of seven membership groups—teachers, EPSs, administrators, certificated specialists, higher education faculty, student educators, and retired members—make towards creating a high-quality public education system from pre-K through college.
