David Hornbeck’s response to Gov. Larry Hogan’s statements about the Kirwan Commission recommendations is well presented and needs to be addressed by the legislature and governor (“Former Maryland state superintendent: Hogan is wrong about the Kirwan Commission,” Aug. 23). I support the commission’s recommendations. As a former pupil personnel worker for Baltimore County Public Schools and juvenile probation worker, I saw firsthand the result of educational neglect, especially with disadvantaged populations.

It is time for Maryland to implement the recommendations of the Kirwan Commission to ensure a well educated and trained workforce. Providing all children a real opportunity for success will strengthen our society.
