Event description

Description

Join NCEE for an in-depth look at the groundbreaking work of the Maryland Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education – the most ambitious comprehensive state-wide school reform effort undertaken in the last quarter century.

Released in early 2019, the Commission's Interim Report is a sweeping redesign of the state's education system based on the strategies used by the highest-performing education systems in the world, coupled with a unique design for accountability. The report brings new life and a different meaning to the school reform movement in the United States by providing a comprehensive template for the redesign of state school systems across the country.

Hosted by NCEE, the Commission's primary policy consultant, the event will be held at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, DC on June 6 and feature commentary from Commission members, leaders of Maryland's policy, business and education sectors, and national education leaders.

The event will be livestreamed here.
