The general session of #MACoCon will be answering your questions on school funding and the Kirwan Commission.
Let MACo know if you have a topic you want directly addressed at the meeting (see instructions near the end of this post.)

Breaking Down the Blueprint: School Funding in Focus


As the generational debate about school funding continues, join our panel for a hearty discussion on Kirwan – its goals, steps, accountability, and costs. Panelists will examine the recommendations that came out of the Commission, how they will translate to legislation in the 2020 Session, what our schoolchildren could expect from this new approach, and the budgetary reality for Maryland’s counties.

  • M. Joy Schaefer, Vice President, Board of Education of Frederick County
