Senator Stone is a product of our public school system, and understands the importance of a strong public education. He knows that when we invest in our schools and hold our school systems accountable, we can provide our children with the education they need to get ahead. Senator Stone has voted for landmark investments in K-12 public education, including record investments in each of the last five years. He has supported strong investments in new school construction and aging school renovation so that our children are learning in safe and modern classrooms. He has also voted for measures to promote accountability in our school systems to ensure that school bureaucrats use taxpayer dollars wisely.
Education does not stop after high school, which is why Senator Stone has worked to keep the doors of higher education open to all Maryland students. He supported a tuition freeze for undergraduates at Maryland's public universities, and he voted to increase funding for local community colleges, which play such a critical role for more Maryland students each year.
