MEET JOHN

A lifelong educator, John B. King Jr. knows firsthand the power of public education and the important role educators play in creating a more just and prosperous future. John’s own life was saved by public school educators after both of his parents passed away by the time he was twelve. Like many kids who suffer trauma, John struggled as a teenager and got into so much trouble that he was actually kicked out of high school. It was public school educators that saved his life, gave him a second chance, and inspired him to become an educator himself. John has spent his entire career fighting for a more just and equitable future, from working as an educator himself to serving as the first Afro-Latino Secretary of Education under President Obama.

We sent both of our daughters to Blair High School so it was especially meaningful to chat with the student journalists of @Silver_Chips today. As Governor, I’ll make sure young Marylanders’ voices are heard. https://t.co/5aqTCc1IA7

No better way to start my Saturday than spending time in Poolesville! It was invaluable to hear about the need for equitable funding for rural Maryland. As Governor, I’ll make sure that the rural parts of our state get the investment and attention they need. https://t.co/t9eVy6NHPd
