Maryland Public Education: The Challenges Ahead

Maryland Public Education: The Challenges Ahead

Debate summary

The Maryland Public Policy Institute hosts a debate on Common Core, universal Pre-K and the role of charter schools. Common Core is a subject of hot debate from all sides of the political spectrum, universal Pre-K is on the platform of a number of gubernatorial candidates as well as a topic of national discussion since President Obama noted it in his State of the Union speech, and Maryland’s charter law because it is one of the most restrictive in the nation. We think this heavy hitting group of panelists will not only draw a big crowd, but shed both light and heat on how to improve public education for all in Maryland. Join us for a reception at 6 pm, while the program begins at 7 pm.

    Common Core states the need for standardization in creating an environment of achievement for US students. STEM courses are already standardized because they are factual, so your attempts at standardizing the information that makes the US a plurality and allows democratic freedom of thought—-humanities and liberal arts—-with Common Core are indeed the source of widespread protest. When you say Common Core is just a philosophy while private Common Core lesson plans are filling our classrooms–Baltimore City actually uses Rupert Murdoch online lessons—are you being forthcoming to the citizens of Maryland and Baltimore County?
