Students To Discuss MD Education Issues During Town Hall Meeting

MARYLAND β€” The Maryland State Department of Education will host a student town hall meeting Tuesday starting at 5 p.m. Maryland high school students will be able to engage in a discussion about education with State Superintendent of Schools Karen B. Salmon and Maryland State Board of Education Student Member Jason Wu.

Discussions will include current issues facing education and Maryland State Department of Education’s work focused on equity and excellence. Students can register to participate and submit their questions here: https://tinyurl.com/67pxcyvd.

“Maryland’s students are the very mission of the MSDE and at the core of every decision that we make,” State Superintendent Dr. Karen B. Salmon said. “As we continue to move forward and reopen schools for in-person learning, I am looking forward to this opportunity to hear directly from students about student needs, as well as student concerns regarding the future of Maryland education.”

“Often, students may feel left out of policymaking, and this open forum will give them the opportunity to have their voices heard,” added student board member Jason Wu. “Student forum conversations are critical to creating a meaningful relationship between policymakers and those affected by our decisions.”

Registration for the Student Town Hall ends at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, June 1. Members of the public will be able to view and hear the meeting in real time via live stream at http://www.marylandpublicschools.org/studenttownhall
