How to pay for everything is a legitimate concern. Maryland voters took a huge first step last year by passing Question 1, which guarantees the money from casino revenues actually goes to education. That money has started flowing in this year. The General Assembly took the second step by passing The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future. This legislation mandates additional monies over the next three years for teacher salaries, special education, PreK, and other programs. This is great news; the Baltimore Sun also recently reported that most of the cost of the Kirwan Commission recommendations, such as expanding career technical programs in high schools, would be covered by projected revenue growth.
