Through the PALS Committee, MCEA members engage with our elected officials at the Board of Education, Montgomery County Council, and Maryland General Assembly.
We aim to form deep relationships with elected decision-makers to make positive change in Montgomery County and to support the MCEA objectives. At the core of the PALS committee is our direct engagement with elected officials. We engage in this work to ensure that all children across Montgomery County have access to public education to transform lives and create a more just and inclusive society.
MCEA believes that public education is the foundation of a strong and thriving community, and is accomplished through:
Ensuring equity for all children,
Honoring the professionalism of educators,
Providing full funding of our public schools, and
Engaging community partners and stakeholders.
