MSEA Statement on Veto of Blueprint for Maryland’s Future

“The governor’s veto is a disappointing but hopefully temporary setback. Now more than ever, we need the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future to create strong schools in every neighborhood by expanding career and technical education, providing additional support to struggling learners, and delivering a more prosperous future for our state. Our schools have been underfunded for years and recent weeks have only magnified the existing inequities that our students face every day that challenge their ability to succeed in school. We must come together to end these inequities that have underserved too many students and communities for too long. We urge the overwhelming number of legislators from both parties who voted for the Blueprint to override the veto at the next session of the legislature so we can deliver the support to our students that they desperately need," said Baltimore County elementary school teacher and Maryland State Education Association President Cheryl Bost. 

MSEA Statement on School Closure Decision

“Although this is the right decision for the safety and health of our students, educators, and state, today is a sad day. Educators miss our students. We wish we could see them, talk with them, laugh with them, and teach them in person. We wish we could say goodbye to them before the school year ends. Instead, educators, families, and students will continue to do our best during this period of crisis distance learning, while knowing that we have a great deal of work to do now and moving forward. We must address the inequities within our community—whether of technology access for educators and students, food security, trauma care, or otherwise—that have been magnified by this crisis. We look forward to the day that we can return to our schools and the everyday joys, challenges, and work of educating our students," said Baltimore County elementary school teacher and MSEA President Cheryl Bost.
