On May 7, Gov. Larry Hogan vetoed the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future, which passed with strong bipartisan support during the 2020 General Assembly session and was scheduled to become law on July 1.

Baltimore County elementary school teacher and Maryland State Education Association (MSEA) President Cheryl Bost released the following statement: 

“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.”
