Goetz new president of MABE


ANNAPOLIS — Proposed legislation to enforce state curriculum mandates by way of restricting funding for non-compliance is meeting pushback from several factions across the state, including local school officials in Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot counties.

House Bill 119, passed earlier this month, sets new standards in place for curriculum guides and instruction, including health education. The bill also grants the state superintendent of schools authority to withhold funds from the county board of education if he determines they are “not following the State Board policy and guidelines or is authorizing students to opt–out of instruction in a manner that is not approved by the State Board.”
