The Kirwan Commission was established by the state of Maryland to issue recommendations regarding public school policies and funding. They were supposed to issue a report at the end of 2017, but are delaying its release until after the 2018 Maryland General Assembly. While the commission is expected to recommend universal pre-K, a new pay structure for teachers, and a formula for distributing Maryland education funds more fairly, some advocates believe they should explicitly take racial equity into account when shaping policy. We talk about those issues along with the role standardized testing plays in education policy and funding.
