What Marylanders Think About

Melissa Gerr

Just as Republican Gov. Larry Hogan and Democrats in the state legislature are squaring off over how much to invest in revamping Maryland’s public schools … a new Goucher Poll finds three out of four Maryland adults claim they’re willing to pay higher taxes for better schools. We ask Mileah Kromer, director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Goucher College, about that as well as other topics Marylanders weighed in on. Then we get a sample of the debate over school funding from State Budget Secretary David Brinkley and Democrat Sen. Bill Ferguson of Baltimore.

You can see all of the results from the Goucher Poll here.
