Education

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. 

What We’re Keeping an Eye On

One major current focus is making quality early childcare 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 dropout rate, and assure that all high school graduates are prepared for college or other career options.
