Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) has reestablished a commission, made up of parents, business owners and educators, to advise him on ways to improve the county schools.
The Commission for Education Excellence took a hiatus last year while Baker pushed to take over the school system and after Segun Eubanks, the commission’s former chairman, was appointed to lead the district’s new hybrid school board.
Christian Rhodes, Baker’s education adviser, said the panel’s charge remains the same: to find innovative ways to improve education.

The commission was originally formed in 2012, just prior to former School Superintendent William R. Hite’s resignation. >>>>Read more Washington Post
