MarylandCAN, which is affiliated with a national coalition of school reformers called 50CAN, announced its agenda this week.
Funding for pre-kindergarten programs could potentially be funded by revenue from gaming tables if a referendum passes allowing them, Valentine said.
Both the pre-kindergarten and the parent involvement bills have been introduced before.
Maryland's charter law, which some charter law advocates view as weak, is another issue the organization wants to work on, Valentine said.
MarylandCAN is also attempting to focus attention on the achievement gap between poor and minority students and other students.
