Ben Jealous on Education

 

 


Criticized proposals vouchers proposals

Education: Increase funding for K-12 education?

Hogan: No. Create more efficiency with current revenue streams, allow choice programs like vouchers.

Jealous: Yes. "Raise teacher pay by 29%, fund full-day universal Pre-K." Fund this by taxing legal marijuana.

Education: Provide vouchers to parents to send their children to private schools with public money?

Hogan: Yes. Increased scholarship funding for low-income students attending non-public school of their choice.

Jealous: No. Criticized proposed vouchers proposals. Would instead increase funding for public schools.

Raise school spending with gambling revenue & legalized pot

Before Gov. Hogan took office, public schools were ranked first in the country for 5 years running. Now, under his leadership, we've slipped to sixth. As governor, I will reverse this trend by making sure we raise teacher pay by 29%, fund full-day universal Pre-K by legalizing and taxing marijuana for adult use, and force Annapolis to finally keep its promise to use all of the casino and lottery revenue to increase education spending, not replace money they've shifted to other priorities.
