Teachers union ads urge no cut in school funding

A Maryland teachers union is launching a petition drive to protect strong investments in schools. The Maryland State Education Association kicked 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. Maryland is facing a $750 million budget deficit for the next fiscal year. Hogan will submit his budget to the General Assembly on Jan. 23, two days after he takes office. MSEA is the state’s largest union and professional association.
