Forum Focuses on College and Career Readiness

On December 6, over 400 Maryland community college faculty and staff will meet at the 4th Annual Summit on Completion, a full-day forum focused on Maryland’s College and Career Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013, hosted by the Community College of Baltimore County in Catonsville, Maryland.

The forum offers 24 workshops allowing educators to collaborate on best practices for increasing the number of students who achieve a college degree or career credential.  As described,

Two of the legislative sponsors of the College and Career Readiness Act, Senator Paul Pinsky, and Delegate Anne Kaiser, will participate in a panel discussion with Secretary of Higher Education, Dr. Danette Howard, about the need for reforms in American higher education.

Panelists will discuss how Maryland’s College and Career Readiness Act correlates middle and high school educational competencies with college level requirements in order to produce students who are ready for college and career.
