Maryland Named #1 Public School System by Education Week


Location: Rockville, MD

Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen issued the following statement congratulating the State of Maryland on being named the #1 Public School System in the country by Education Week, the nation's leading education newspaper:

"Congratulations to Maryland on being named the #1 Public School System for the fifth year in a row by Education Week. Our state's commitment to education begins each morning with the hard work of talented teachers and administrators. Their work is made possible by Maryland's Thornton funding formula for schools, which prioritizes important investments in education. I will continue to work with Governor Martin O'Malley, Superintendent of Schools Lillian Lowery, and my colleagues in Congress to provide opportunities for all of our students to succeed."
