Officials sign plan for education reform


Also in yesterday's Maryland section, an article incorrectly named one of the technology partners with the Maryland State Department of Education. AT&T; Corp. is participating in the effort to provide a Web site for each school system.

The Sun regrets the errors.

Maryland became the first state yesterday to answer President Clinton's "Call to Action" for education when U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley, Gov. Parris N. Glendening and state school Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick signed the state's nine-point program for continuing education reform.

In ceremonies at Eastern Technical High School in Essex, school and state officials also announced partnerships with Bell Atlantic, the Family Education Network and the Social Security Administration to advance technology and to make it easier for parents to be involved in schools.

"I hope other states will follow Maryland's lead," Riley told hundreds of educators, politicians and students gathered for the event.
