How do we best prepare students for 21st century careers and the future economy? There's a growing interest in finding ways to prepare students for a wide range of high wage, high skill and high demand jobs and careers. We will explore research related to CTE, best practices, models of success and challenges with preparing students for high wage, high skill careers.
The Commission is to review and assess current education financing formulas and accountability measures and how each local school system spends its funds, including the increased State funds provided through the Bridge to Excellence in Public Schools Act. Moreover, the Commission will review the Study on Adequacy of Funding for Education in the State of Maryland, required by the Bridge to Excellence in Public Schools Act. Come hear directly from local and statewide organizations to learn about their work focused on the Kirwan Commission and other legislation focused on local, education-related issues.
Maryland Philanthropy Network continues to look for ways in which funders can stay engaged with public policy in the off-season to help affect systemic change in education. To that end, we are hosting a conversation with Dr. William E. (Brit) Kirwan for a discussion on the Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education.
Maryland lawmakers passed a sweeping education package in the latest General Assembly session and recently identified a work group whose task will be to find a way to pay for it.
Dr. Brit Kirwan, chair of the Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education, was a recent guest on WYPR’s Midday program.
The Kirwan Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education has become a key talking point in the 2018 election campaign, and on Thursday it picks up its work where it left off in January for the legislative session.
