Public Advocacy

As budget cuts have threatened the Magnet, many students, alumni, and parents have spoken out on behalf of the program. The Magnet community has sent letters and e-mails to local politicians, they have written letters to the editors of local newspapers, and they have testified before the Montgomery County Board of Education and County Council.

This is a repository of some of that testimony, which documents how much the Magnet means to those who have experienced it.
