April 27, 2018

With the 2018 session in the books, and many officials hitting the campaign trail, an important effort is gearing up once again in Annapolis. The "Kirwan" Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education has reconvened, and set an aggressive agenda for its year of work ahead. In the balance? Maryland's record of achievement for our schoolchildren, and the means to advance to greater goals. Its all-year push toward a slate of ambitious objectives re-started up this week.
