Council Vice Chair and At-Large Member Hawkins says education funding will continue to play a significant role in the future of Prince George’s County and it is important for residents to understand its impact.

“Education is an issue that impacts every Prince George’s County resident, whether you have school-age children in the home or not. We all have a role in making sure our young people receive the quality education they deserve, in school buildings that are safe and promote their best work, and with teachers who are adequately paid. How we achieve that is what Kirwan is about and what Dr. Thornton will help us discuss. I encourage residents to attend, bring your questions and concerns, share your experiences, and come ready for the conversation.”
