Who We Are
The Education Committee leads LWVMC efforts to support quality public education and equal educational opportunity in Montgomery County. We communicate mostly by email, but schedule committee meetings at the LWVMC office on an ad hoc basis.
What We Do
Based on the public policy positions agreed to by our members, we prepare testimony on the MCPS budget and other issues before the Montgomery County Board of Education and the County Council. One major current focus is making quality early child care and pre-kindergarten accessible and affordable to all Montgomery County families. We also are following other MCPS efforts to narrow the achievement gap, decrease the drop-out rate, and assure that all high school graduates are prepared for college or other career options.
What You Can Do
Help us follow educational developments in Montgomery County and best practices in education. Watch Board of Education meetings; attend community meetings; share news articles; pick one or more issues to focus on – or just join us to get our emails and stay up to date on what’s happening locally in education.
