Hearing to be held on the Effects of Concentrated Poverty on Education

The Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education, also known as the Kirwan Commission, is preparing a report that will determine the future of education funding in Maryland. It is well documented that it costs more to properly educate children growing up in areas of concentrated poverty than their peers in more affluent communities.

The Baltimore City Council Education and Youth Committee will hold a hearing on the impact concentrated poverty has on a child’s education and what it may mean for the recommendations of the Kirwan Commission.

Please note this hearing will not be held in the City Council Chambers, but at an offsite location. It will also be televised on Charm TV.

The hearing time and place will be:

Wednesday, November 14
5 pm
Dorothy Height Elementary School
2011 Linden Ave
Baltimore, MD 21217
