Gov. Wes Moore talks education, Blueprint policy priorities at Maryland Public Television town hall

September 14, 2023
Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, this photograph depicts a typical classroom scene, where an audience of school children were seated on the floor before a teacher at the front of the room, who was reading an illustrated storybook, during one of the scheduled classroom sessions. Assisting the instructor were two female students to her left, and a male student on her right, who was holding up the book, while the seated classmates were raising their hands to answer questions related to the story just read.

At Wednesday’s event, Moore was asked how he planned to tackle educational disparities across jurisdictions in the state. His answer: the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future, historic legislation funneling billions of dollars into the state’s public schools over the next decade. “We cannot be afraid to say that these disparities that we have in the state of Maryland — not just when it comes to education, but with every single facet — that for many of them, they are generational and long-standing,” Moore said.
