Maryland’s governor stands up to a misguided effort from teachers unions

A bill that would have changed the composition of the Maryland State Board of Education by adding three seats that would have gone to two current teachers and the parent of a current public school student was vetoed May 24 by Mr. Hogan. Under the measure, which did not attract much attention and was approved with overwhelming Democratic support, the governor would have been required to appoint members to the board from a list produced by the Maryland State Education Association and Baltimore Teachers Union.
