Critics protest Hogan's education budget cuts in Maryland

Betty Weller, president of the Maryland State Education Association, said Hogan's budget plan amounts to roughly $144 million in reductions to K-12.

"Governor Hogan campaigned to change Maryland, but unfortunately his budget is going to shortchange Maryland," said Weller, who heads a teachers' union representing 71,000 teachers and education support professionals across the state.

1. Same thing the last Republican governor of Maryland did. Always the first priority:

cut education, dumb them down. And there was no budget crisis that I recall back then.

All Maryland's Republican governors have been horrible. At least the last one was just horrible.
The one's before that were actually CROOKS, got disbarred, etc.
