Now more than ever, our students need elected officials in the State House to prioritize support and funding for our public schools – all our public schools. This pandemic has demonstrated the essential role public schools play in our state. Public schools provide educational programs, nutritional services, support for the social and emotional development of young people, and a host of other services to kids in nearly every community of our state.

Over the past two years, our state has made tremendous progress for public schools – historic increases in state aid, more efforts to support and increase the voices of teachers and other educators, and real efforts to support our treasured institutions of higher learning. Over the next two years our schools will face new challenges. Mainers need to elect representatives to our state government who are committed to supporting our students, our public schools, and the people who work in them. 

Below are candidates who respect public schools and will advocate to make sure our schools and our students get the support they need and deserve.
