Maryland Achieves Education Week Magazine's #1 Ranking in Education

 

The following information was sent to us by Scott L. Peterson:

 

Today, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III released the following statement congratulating the State of Maryland for achieving the ranking of #1 in education for the fourth year in a row by Education Week magazine.

 

“This achievement would not have been possible without the hard work of students, parents, principals, teachers, and support personnel who work together each day to assure the achievement of the best possible education for our young people. This ranking also highlights the outstanding work and leadership of Governor Martin O’Malley and our General Assembly for consistently ensuring that education is Maryland’s number one priority.

 

I especially would like to thank the more than18,000 employees of Prince George’s County Public Schools for their outstanding work on behalf students and families in Prince George’s County. They share my commitment to academic excellence and have been a major factor in bringing about the improvements we have seen in County schools. I am confident that those improvements have had an impact on the state’s consistent top ranking over the past several years.

 

While Maryland ranks first in the nation, as a County we must continue to improve our school system and make certain that each day our students are provided the best education possible. As County Executive, I remain committed to ensuring that all students in Prince George’s County are provided the quality education they deserve. Together we can make our school system great.”
