The Education Commission of the States
operates under the provisions of the Compact for
Education, which Maryland ratified by Chapter
128, Acts of 1966. The Commission was created to
establish and maintain close cooperation and un-
derstanding among the executive, legislative, pro-
fessional educational, and lay leadership on a na-
tionwide basis at the State and local levels. It also
informs political and educational leaders of current
trends and ideas in education, as well as provides a
forum for the discussion, development, crystalliza-
tion, and recommendation of public policy
alternatives in the field of education. In addition,
the Commission provides a clearinghouse of infor-
mation on matters relating to educational problems
and how they are being met in different places
thoughout the United States, so that the executive
and legislative branches of each State government
and of the local communities may have ready ac-
cess to the experience and record of the entire
country, and so that both lay and professional
groups in the field of education may have addition-

al 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 membership assessment.
The same Act also created the Maryland Educa-
tional Council, which consists of seven members, of
whom two are ex offido members and three are
appointed by the Governor because of their interest
in educational matters and who reflect the interests
of the State government, higher education, the State
educational system, and local education. Their
terms coincide with those of the appointing Gover-
nor. The ex offido members are the Governor and
the State Superintendent of Schools. One member is
appointed by the President of the Senate and one by
the Speaker of the House of Delegates (Code Edu-
cation Article, sees. 25-101 through 25-104).

The Education Coordinating Committee was
created by Chapter 538, Acts of 1976, to coordi-
nate the policies and activities of the boards
named so that all segments of the Committee
work in harmony. "The Committee 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
Chairperson, the State Superintendent of Schools,
and the Commissioner of Higher Education. The
Committee selects its own Chairperson. The
Committee is to study, consider, and make
recommendations regarding educational policies
that concern or have an effect on elementary, sec-
ondary, or higher education (Code Education Ar-
ticle, sees. 24-101 through 24-103).
Chairperson: Harry K. Wells, 1984
