ANNAPOLIS, MD (February 14, 2011) – Governor Martin O’Malley issued this statement today following President Obama’s visit to Maryland to outline his proposed FY 2012 budget and his commitment to protect investments in public education:
“I want to thank President Obama for visiting Parkville Middle School and Center of Technology today to introduce his proposed budget. The President’s proposed budget makes the tough and fiscally responsible choices to reduce the deficit, but protect investments in public education and win the future. In Maryland, even in these challenging times, we’ve protected record education funding for Maryland schools and President Obama’s visit today recognizes the importance of these investments as we prepare the next generation of Americans to win the future.”
“Parkville Middle School and Center of Technology is a wonderful example of Maryland’s best-in-the-nation public schools, which serve as a national model for career technical education, focusing on the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math that prepare our students for the new economy”.
