Officials urge tax increases for schools

State Sen. Nancy King and County Executive Ike Leggett joined speakers who touted Montgomery County Public Schools’ achievements and then urged community participation — in the forms of increased taxes.
Leggett said one reason that MCPS needs money is to decrease the student-teacher ratio.
MCPS cannot continue to operate as it does now if its funding remains at the current level, he said.


  1. What happened to all that revenue for school construction from, slots, off track betting and casinos? I thought our elected "leaders" told us that these initiative would be a substantial source of funding for Maryland (and MCPS) schools.

  2. I guess the word leaked out from the adjacent municipality: "We can do less with more!"
