Strengthening Education in Anne Arundel County and Maryland
Children are an average of 23% of Anne Arundel County’s population, but 100% of our future. Allison believes in a strong public school system coupled with competitive compensation for educators. We must continue our investment in our Education system including our public charter schools, our magnet school programs; STEM, International Baccalaureate and Performing Visuals Arts, and our Career and Technology centers. Allison also believes in continuing to increase access to Pre-K programs for our youngest learners. But education stretches beyond graduation from high school. We must also support funding for our Community College, Public Library system, and senior centers to ensure Anne Arundel County is fostering life-long learners and supporting our citizens in all their life transitions. All our education programs should be strengthened to continue to provide all residents of Anne Arundel County with the best possible resources for their future.
If I earn the privilege to serve on County Council, I will be steadfast in communicating, advocating, and working toward solid budget and policy decisions that lead to an improved education system in Anne Arundel County. My priorities include funding to reduce class size, competitive compensation for all teachers, and increased funding for more guidance counselors.
