Meet at the House of Delegates in the Canteen,
6 Bladen St., Annapolis, 1st floor.

  • Fight the rising cost of higher education in Maryland.

Don't Let Annapolis Shortchange Maryland Education

Gov. Hogan’s $144 million in school funding cuts threaten the progress of our top-notch public schools, slashing an average of $3,600 from every classroom and $100,000 from every school. We can’t let these cuts challenge our students’ success.


AFT-Maryland Members take to Annapolis
