As a high school teacher, I’ve seen many of my students graduate and realize their dreams of going to a Maryland college or university. Unfortunately, I’ve also seen students’ dreams crushed after being denied in-state tuition despite graduating from a Maryland high school and being accepted to a Maryland college or university.

A year from now, many of today’s high school seniors will be starting their first semester at a Maryland public college. However, unless we defend the Maryland DREAM Act, some students who graduate from Maryland high schools and receive acceptance letters to Maryland colleges will be denied in-state tuition.

Don’t let another year go by where Maryland students who graduate from Maryland high schools are not allowed to pay in-state tuition.

Make a small contribution today so that no Maryland student’s dreams are crushed next year.
