Business group lauded for work on education

October 02, 1997

WASHINGTON -- The Maryland Business Roundtable for Education received the 1997 State Coalition of the Year Award yesterday for working to ensure that all the state's students receive a quality education.

Presented by the National Alliance for Business at its annual meeting here, the award recognizes the roundtable's work with the Maryland State Department of Education in helping to set high standards for students, teachers and administrators and to communicate those standards.

The roundtable is a coalition of more than 80 Maryland businesses working to reform public education. Last week, the group testified before the Maryland State Board of Education in support of rigorous high school graduation tests.
