ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The House of Delegates have passed the Blueprint for Maryland's Future, a 10-year strategic plan to raise academic achievement and strengthen the educator workforce.

Baltimore County elementary school teacher and Maryland State Education Association president Cheryl Bost released the following statement on the passing of the bill.

“Tonight legislators took a huge step toward realizing our once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure that every student in every neighborhood has a great public school. The House’s action to pass the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future gets us closer to expanding career and technical education, hiring more educators and increasing their pay, providing additional support to struggling learners, and creating lasting educational equity and a more prosperous future for Maryland. Our kids can’t wait for the adequate and equitable school funding that they deserve—we must keep the momentum going and pass a new funding formula during the 2020 legislative session.”

The Senate will now take up the bill.
