ACTION ALERT: Kirwan Hearing on 2/17 President’s Day


The Kirwan (or “Blueprint”) legislation, which has the potential to invest $4 billion dollars in Maryland’s public schools, has been scheduled for a joint hearing with committees from both the House and the Senate on Monday, February 17th at 12pm. Lucky for us, this happens to be on President’s Day when schools are closed.      

The Blueprint Coalition of which BTU is a member, is planning to flood this hearing with a sea of blue shirts in support of the legislation (so come wearing a blue shirt in case they run out of Blueprint t-shirts). This is an exciting opportunity to really make an impression on legislators and let them know that when it comes to finally getting Maryland’s students the resources they deserve, we mean business!
