Report and Recommendations of the Task Force to Evaluate the Final Report of the Governor's Study Commission on Structure and Governance of Education.
Maryland Governor's Study Commission on Structure and Governance of Education, Annapolis.
The report of the Study Commission on Structure and Governance of Education (commonly known as the Rosenberg Commission), which provoked considerable controversy because of its recommended broad changes, was evaluated by a task force through public and invitational hearings and extensive meetings. The recommendations for elementary and secondary education focus on these areas: the state board of education's structure, the state superintendent of schools' role and office, the Baltimore City school system's structure and administration, jurisdiction over collegiate programs, school construction, programs of health-related and correctional facilities, parent advisory councils, regional services, collective bargaining, cooperative arrangements with industry and government, equalizing educational opportunity, and intergovernmental relations. Recommendations for higher education include broad, statewide changes in system and institutional structures and roles, the size and composition of the State Board for Higher Education, university status for Morgan State University, no changes in the University of Maryland system, retention of a single governing board for the state colleges with some changes, incorporation of community colleges into the larger state system, a regional university system for the Eastern Shore, and consolidation of several abolished state agencies into a Department of Higher Education. Some measures for coordination of elementary, secondary, and higher education are also made. (MSE)
