The Education Commission of the States operates under the Compact for Education, which Maryland ratified in 1966 (Chapter 128, Acts of 1966). The Commission informs political and educational leaders of current trends and ideas in education and provides a forum for public education policy. It serves as a national clearinghouse for information on educational problems and their solutions, linking state and local executive, legislative, professional, educational and lay leaders to a national network. This information is available to private associations and state and local governments.

Maryland pays an annual state membership assessment. The members of the Maryland Education Council represent Maryland on the Commission (Code Education Article, secs. 25-101 through 25-104).
