Discussion Groups

Who We Are

Discussion Groups are monthly neighborhood gatherings of members and guests for the purpose of studying and discussing civic issues. Some discussions are purely educational to make members aware of key issues in Montgomery County. Other discussions require member consensus to develop League policy positions.

Discussion Group Topics for 2017

December—Early Childhood Education in Montgomery County

early-child-educ_250.jpgThe December Discussion Groups will be asked to consider consensus questions drawn from the Early Childhood Education in Montgomery County study. The first two consensus questions ask whether League members continue to support the basic elements of our current Early Childhood Education positions (see Fact Sheet 2017-12 Early Childhood Education for details) and whether universal Pre-K should be a goal for Montgomery County. The third question focuses on how to prioritize progress toward universal Pre-K education. If you are a member of the League and would like to vote your opinion on the consensus questions but cannot attend one of the discussion groups listed below under What You Can Do, read the fact sheet, study the questions and decide on your answers. Send your answers to the League office at lwvmc@erols.com or via snail mail, 12216 Parklawn Drive, Suite 105, Rockville, MD 20852.
