EASTON, Md. (AP) — Sen. Barbara Mikulski will be gathering with educators on the Eastern Shore to discuss needs of rural school districts.

Mikulski, D-Md., will attend the roundtable discussion on Tuesday in Easton.

The senator is holding the discussion as Congress gets ready to take up reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which emphasizes equal access to education. Mikulski will be talking about how the federal law could be changed to better meet student needs.

Mikulski was recently appointed the chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Subcommittee on Children and Families. The subcommittee will play a big role in reauthorizing the federal law.

Superintendents from nine Eastern Shore counties are scheduled to attend.

    How about making city, county and state responsible to meet the needs of the children of not only the rural but every school aged child in Maryland. What do all you pay property taxes for? It’s obviously not for making the streets safer. Be weary of those in “office for life”. Your agenda is not Hers. Likewise, Hers is not yours; unless you are lobbying, but then again, where there is a lobbyist there is an entire bankroll behind him.

    The only thing that this little TROLL is looking to do. Is taking money from the rural schools and giving it to baltimore city that has the highest pupal costs

    no our idiots in office take money that is suppose to be for schools after school programs county,city doen’t matter the money never hits the schools and it never will our politicians pay to have there kids in private schools and that is where the money goes never to the county or city schools they just use that as a ploy to raise more money for there own private schools

  4. Bernard Mc Kernan says:

    I would like to see for once the interest of the kids be paramount instead of squandering the monies on racial busing, overpaid administrators like Alonso in the city of Baltimore & Hairston in Balto county. Where in the hell does all the money get spent? A federal investigation done by an independent org is in order here.
