Our District has a very deficient education system in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Howard County. The students in grade schools in Baltimore City and Baltimore County are often faced with lack of air-conditioning or heat, and the schools have to be closed when these systems break down.  Dr. Jay believes that we need to invest in our children’s education and implement the recommendations of the Kirwan Commission to create a progressive learning environment for every child in our school system, because students of all ages deserve full and fair access to an internationally competitive high-quality public education that meets the demands of the 21st century workplace.
