Education rally deserved greater attention

I was very disappointed that the huge March for Education rally in Annapolis was covered in the next day’s newspaper by only by one black-and-white photo on page 2 (“Thousands of Maryland teachers to rally in Annapolis Monday for more school funding,” March 11). Surely, an event that involved thousands of people of all ages, backgrounds and races and filled block after block of the city is worth more coverage than that.

Speakers at the event included county executives, Baltimore’s mayor, Del. Maggie McIntosh and other prominent citizens. The energy and excitement of the march were extraordinary and the desire for adequate funding for public schools across the state unmistakable. The multi-vehicle crash in Harford County that left two dead and that you featured on the front page was, indeed, horrific (“President of Klein’s ShopRite, 7-year-old boy killed in multivehicle crash in Harford County,” March 11). But the issues and people involved in the March for Education will have a much more lasting effect on the future of the state and its citizens.

The entire event was an exciting and energizing illustration of citizen advocacy for an investment in the future of our state and our children.
