MD Legislature Overrules Gov. Hogan’s Veto

April 12, 2017

The Maryland Legislature overruled Gov. Larry Hogan’s veto of a bill that “would limit the state’s use of charter operators and vouchers to improve low-performing schools” under the state’s ESSA plan. The bill received support from the teacher’s union who argued it “was meant to prevent the privatization of the state’s public school system and limit the overuse of testing in the classroom.”
