O'Malley, McDonnell to talk education in New York

The governors of Maryland and Virginia are among those slated to take part in a panel discussion Monday on the state of education as part of NBC News’s “Education Nation” initiative.

A No.1 ranking of Maryland’s public schools by Education Week magazine for three years running has given O’Malley plenty to brag about in similar forums. He is also certain to plug the state’s four-year freeze on in-state college tuition, which made the Maryland higher education system more affordable, relatively speaking, during his first term.

The assembled governors will also field questions from teachers, principals, parents and students, according to summit organizers.

NBC News bills its Education Nation initiative as an ongoing opportunity “to engage the country in a solutions-focused conversation about the state of education in America.”
