Say NO to Maintenance of Effort Waiver sign now


County Executive Jack Johnson and members of the Prince George's County Council have presented a proposal to the Maryland State Department of Education for a waiver of the "Maintenance of Effort" for funding our school budget at least at the rate it was funded this year. County Executive Johnson is planning on taking an additional 23.6 million out of the Board of Education budget on top of the $36 million in cuts that have already been proposed. This may lead to a reduction in services for our students, increased class size and elimination of core classroom reforms. Prince George's County has taken major steps in raising test scores, and was key in helping Maryland earn a #1 ranking in Education by two nationally recognized publications. We cannot turn back!!!

Join PGCEA in the fight to let the County Executive and other Prince George's County Elected Officials know that you do not support this plan by signing our petition and visiting our website: www.pgcea.org for more information and activities supporting educators and education in Prince George's County.

    My vote is no. Schools have enough problems as it is. They need more money and more people that actually care about educating.

    Education should be the last thing that is decreased in services and funds. We are doing our children telling our children that their education does not matter. Please rethink this option.
