For the past year the Kirwan Commission has been meeting to look at how the state of Maryland funds public education. An independent study that was presented to the commission found that Maryland is underfunding public education by over 2 Billion dollars.

The Kirwan Commission is holding 4 regional meeting to get input from the public. Unfortunately, they have not be well publicized. The western region meeting is happening this Thursday at Frederick High School starting at 6:30pm. This is an important opportunity to reinforce the needs our schools, students and staff have that are not being met with the current levels of funding both from the state and the county.
