MABE Responds to Governor’s Legislative Initiatives


On January 8, 2018, Governor Larry Hogan held a press conference and issued a press release to announce that he will release $2.5 million for emergency repairs in Baltimore City Schools, and also announced that he will introduce two major education reform bills. One bill would rewrite the 2017 Protect Our Schools Act to, in part, increase the role of student test results in determining school performance (from 65% to 80%). A second bill, the Education Accountability Act, would create a state-level inspector general within the Maryland State Dept. of Education to take complaints on matters ranging from school facility conditions to school finance, procurement, and ethics.
