ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Supporters of finding more room in Maryland's budget for education are launching a website to show how a current budget plan would affect school districts.

House Speaker Michael Busch is scheduled to be joined by Maryland State Education Association President Betty Weller on Tuesday in Annapolis, along with PTA President Ray Leone.

They are criticizing Gov. Larry Hogan's budget plan, because it scales back funding by roughly $144 million less than what schools were expecting to receive, based on past budgets in recent years.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland teachers' union is launching a petition drive to protect strong investments in schools.

The Maryland State Education Association is kicking off a radio ad campaign and online petition drive on Monday. The ad will run for two weeks in Baltimore, the District of Columbia and other parts of Maryland.

The campaign is calling on Gov.-elect Larry Hogan and state lawmakers to not cut school funding.

 

     ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland state employees will be unveiling a "Doomsday Clock" to count down when a half a billion in budget cuts will take effect, unless a special session is called to change the budget.

     The Maryland State Education Association is planning to show the clock on Wednesday at its Annapolis office.

     MSEA says an educator, a member of the police department, librarian a parole and probation officer and others will attend the event.
