Our children are the future, and that's why we need to invest in their education. Mia will fight for more education funding to bring high quality academic environments to all young Marylanders. Mia believes in an immersive teaching environment to develop the critical thinking skills required for children to thrive in today's world.
Since teachers are the backbone of education, Mia strongly supports teachers unions and collective bargaining.
We need to set the federal minimum salary for teachers to be $60,000 so that we entice students of all disciplines to want to be teachers.
Teachers need to be protected by a collective bargaining agreement to ensure they're skilled, can reach the goals of our system, and have the tools to succeed.
We need universal pre-K so we can catch up with the rest of the world while also allowing parents a safe place to send younger children without paying 1000’s of dollars a month.
Mia will fight for more education funding for schools so that all of our children receive equal and high quality education.
These schools ultimately are paid for by the taxpayer with huge levels of waste and overhead. They, on average, leave students less ready for the world that public education.
Rep. Harris, on June 30, 2020, is currently pushing for schools to reopen day one because many zip codes in Maryland he states have zero cases. This could be the same for many other states. Therefore, he is pushing President Trump's agenda as an original co-sponsor of House Resolution 1026 to reopen the schools or they lose their funding.
Harris lasted worked on education issues in 2014 and 2013 for religious school vouchers, sponsoring Catholic Schools, and co-sponsored Aissuesbstinence Education Reallocation Act.
All of the bills above failed to pass the House. Therefore, Grant King Andy has provided grants ranging from $50,000 to nearly $10 million to provide regional assistance versus national assistance.
Mia will fight for more education funding for schools so that all of our children receive equal and high quality education. We also need to lessen the focus on standardized testing and focus more on how to prepare students for the 21st century. An immersive environment is necessary to encourage our children to learn and grow.
