BUILD - Kirwan Commission training at Brown Memorial

Are you aware that there is a commission that is developing recommendations that could result in the biggest change in education policy and funding across the state in a generation? 

On October 7 at 12:30, BUILD and Brown Memorial Presbyterian will be hosting a training on the essential work being done by The Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education, also known as “the Kirwan Commission.” The Kirwan Commission was created to make recommendations that will prepare Maryland students “to meet the challenges of a changing global economy, to meet the State’s workforce needs, to be prepared for postsecondary education and the workforce, and to be successful citizens in the 21st century.”

This is a huge opportunity for Baltimore city, where 96% of our schools experience concentrated poverty. Please join us in the sanctuary (1316 Park Avenue) after church to learn more about the Kirwan Commission and what we can do to help get its policy and funding recommendations passed by the legislature. Now is our chance to finally give our schools appropriate funding over the next decade and more. RSVP by Tuesday October 2nd to Rebecca Crew at  

As you may notice - the deadline to RSVP was yesterday. All are still welcome, but there will not be lunch for anyone who has not already RSVPd - so, please eat your fill at coffee hour here at Memorial (or at least, take the edge off) before heading across the street.
