Maryland Boards of Education Release County-by-County List of Funding Cuts

In its recent call to action to raise awareness for education funding, the Maryland Association of Boards of Education released county-by-county data on cuts to education funding in the proposed Maryland budget.  The Association President Verjeana Jacobs stated,

“. . . By slashing more than $144 million in public school funding, the Governor’s budget would stall statewide progress to prepare our more than 860,000 students for success in college and career. Maryland’s State Constitution calls on the Governor and General Assembly to make education funding the number one budget priority. The proposed budget fails to do so, and fails to fulfill the promise to our students to adequately and equitably fund all public schools across the state.”

  • Allegany – $1,203,950
