Maryland students have a right to a high-quality public education guaranteed by the state constitution. But for far too many students, that right is undermined by generations of underfunding. This has most deeply impacted students from families with low income and Black and Brown children. Janna Parker, a former educator and a public education advocate, and Kimberly Humphrey, Esq., legislative counsel for the ACLU of Maryland, talk about how you can help to address racial and wealth inequities in the Kirwan Commission, the group developing Maryland’s new statewide education funding formula.

Produced and Hosted by: Amber Taylor, digital communications strategist, ACLU of Maryland
