The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future is a landmark piece of legislation that includes comprehensive changes to Maryland’s education plan for public schools and early childhood programs. This law increases education funding by $3.8 billion each year over the next ten years. The Blueprint offers opportunities for local school systems to innovate programs and practices with the goal of impacting students’ success and decreasing achievement gaps. The plan also recognizes the investments that need to be factored in to enable our educators to transform the system and reach new heights. The Blueprint provides distinct policies for five policy areas, also referred to as the pillars.

The purpose of the MSEA Center for Education Policy and Practice is to educate, elevate, and empower members’ ability to support and prepare diverse students by providing high-quality policy guidance and professional development support

MSEA is here to support educators in understanding this law and other policies that impact their profession.
