On Tuesday, August 10, 2021 we had the pleasure of speaking with Allie Carter, Lead Organizer of Strong Schools Maryland. SSM is a state wide organization that advocates for education. Support Our Schools is a sponsor of one of SSM’s teams of 10. Together we have marched in Annapolis, talked to legislators and activated parents, teachers, students and communities to bring a better future for Maryland’s students. 

In the 2021 legislative session, the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future was passed into law. Watch the video below to find out how SSM was instrumental in the work to get that done and the work that is still left to do. We’ll also talk about some of the resources that are coming to Kent County thanks to the Blueprint.
