ANNAPOLIS, MD — Governor Moore released the following statement regarding Maryland State Superintendent of Schools Mohammed Choudhury’s decision not to seek a second term:

“I want to thank Superintendent Choudhury for his service to the state of Maryland. He led the Maryland State Department of Education admirably during an unprecedented global pandemic and a transformative time for our state's education system. His implementation of the initial phase of the Blueprint for Maryland's Future has set our students and educators up for success as we continue the work of making Maryland's public schools the best in the country. 

​As MSDE looks for our next superintendent, I expect the board to ensure we find an exceptional leader who will commit to transparency, accountability, and partnership with all stakeholders to improve education outcomes in every corner of Maryland. Our educators, students, communities, and families deserve nothing less.”
