The Education Commission of the States
operates under the provisions of the Com-
pact for Education which Maryland ratified
by Chapter 128, Acts of 1966. The Com-
mission was created to establish and main-
tain close cooperation and understanding
among the executive, legislative, professional
educational and lay leadership on a nation-
wide basis at the State and local levels. It also
informs political and educational leaders of
current trends and ideas in education, as well
as to provide a forum for the discussion, de-
velopment, crystallization and recommenda-
tion of public policy alternatives in the field
of education. In addition, the Commission
provides a clearing house of information on
matters relating to educational problems and
how they are being met in different places
throughout the United States, so that the
executive and legislative branches of each
State government and of the local commu-
nities may have ready access to the experi-
ence and record of the entire country, and
so that both lay and professional groups in
the field of education may have additional
avenues for the sharing of experience and
the interchange of ideas in the formation of
public policy in education. Maryland pays

an annual fee of $17,250 for its State mem-
bership assessment.
The same Act also created the Maryland
Educational Council, ^vhich consists of seven
members, of whom two are ex officio mem-
bers and three are appointed by the Gover-
nor because of their interest in educational
matters and who reflect the interests of the
State government, higher education, the
State educational system, and local educa-
tion. Their terms coincide with those of the
appointing Governor. The ex officio mem-
bers are the Governor and' the State Super-
intendent of Schools. One member is
appointed by the President of the Senate
and one by the Speaker of the House of Del-
egates (Code 1957, 1971 Repl. Vol., Art.
41, sees. 375-384).
Representing the State Board for Higher
Education: Harry K. Wells, Richard R.
Kline, J. Harrison Ager. i
Representing the State Board of Education:
(not yet appointed).
David W. Hornbeck, State Superintendent
of Schools
Sheldon H. Knorr, Commissioner for
Higher Education
The Education Coordinating Committee
was created by Chapter 538, Acts of 1976
to coordinate the policies and activities of
the boards named so that all segments of
the Committee work in harmony. The Com-
mittee consists of three members of the
State Board of Education selected by its
President, three members of the State Board
for Higher Education selected by the Chair-
man, the State Superintendent of Schools
and the Commissioner of Higher Education.
The Committee selects its own Chairman.
The Committee is to study, consider and
make recommendations regarding educa-
tional policies which concern or have an
effect on both elementary, secondary or
higher education (Code 1957, 1975 Repl.
Vol., 1976 Supp., Art. 77A, sees. 32B,
