The Marc Steiner Show

March 7, 2011 – Segment 2

With federal stimulus money gone and the recession still far from over, Maryland faces a $1.6 billion budget gap this year.  In Governor Martin O’Malley’s budget proposal for this year, one of the measures he suggests for closing that gap is $94 million in cuts to education.  Our guests today debate the necessity of the cuts, and discuss what they would mean for schools, municipalities, students, and teachers around the state.
Joining us are:
Matthew Gallagher, Chief of Staff for Governor Martin O’Malley
Bebe Verdery, Director of the Education Reform Project at the ACLU of Maryland
