MEC Town Hall – Equity for Students Now
January 27, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
TAKE ACTION on critical education funding and policy matters for the 2021 legislative session.
About this Event
Schools statewide have been grossly underfunded over the past decade and state action to put education funding back on track is long overdue. Adequate education funding is a fundamental constitutional state responsibility — all Maryland public school students have a right to education!
Further, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated disparities that already disproportionately impact Black and Brown, low-income, ELL, special education students and gifted learners in those groups. Hear from our Keynote speaker, Emma Dorn, Global Education Practice Manager for McKinsey and Company discuss the impact of COVID-19 and learning loss and the associated disparities.
Join the Maryland Education Coalition as we discuss critical education funding and policy matters for this legislative session and how we can work together to ensure that the rights of Maryland’s children are a top priority!
