Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is proposing what he says is the biggest increase in school construction in Maryland history.

With Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks at his side and unionized construction workers in the audience, the governor unveiled his proposal in a visit to Highland Park Elementary School in Landover.

“I happen to believe, very strongly, that every single child in our state deserves access to a world class education, regardless of what neighborhood they happen to grow up in,” Hogan said.
