Let Your Voice Be Heard!

 

Maryland PTA has the opportunity to recommend two parents to the Maryland State Board of Education via House 590 State Board of Education - Membership - Teachers and Parents and its cross-filed bill, Senate Bill 609.  This legislation affords us a unique and unprecedented opportunity to sit at the helm of the most impactful decisions in public education for Maryland Public Schools.   

Maryland PTA needs you to make enthusiastic calls to members of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee to request a favorable report on these bills in the interest of parents, like yourself, who seek to improve education for their children who attend Maryland public schools who receive public funds.  Let’s make sure that the Maryland State Board has adequate representation of parents and a voice at the state level who can support strong policies that put our children first.  Embark with us on this journey to put two parents recommended by Maryland PTA to serve on the Board of Education for the State of Maryland.
