Every child in Baltimore deserves access to a good education that will prepare them for the future. It is imperative that every public school receive the funding they need to do right by our educators AND provide a safe, and accessible educational environment. The Kirwan Commission is a good start but Natasha is dedicated to ensuring that the City Council approves a budget that does their part and addresses the demoralizing deterioration of many of our school’s physical plant and infrastructure.
We must offer non-traditional employment opportunities to our youth, not all kids want to go to college -- opportunities that they can grow into careers. We should enhance the development opportunities of our local businesses such as CDL schools and trade schools that will provide a path to careers and not just jobs. We should double down on supporting innovative partnerships like Job Opportunities Task Force’s Jump Start partnership with the building trades Unions.
