ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland work group on education funding is meeting in the state capital, as it nears important decisions.

The panel is scheduled to meet Tuesday.

Some of the subjects that its members are set to discuss are revised per pupil funding and teacher retirement costs.

The panel is focused on how the state and local governments would split the costs of implementing recommendations to improve public schools.

Former University of Maryland Chancellor William Kirwan is leading a state commission that has made a variety of recommendations. He has said the work group focusing on the funding formula will make final decisions on recommendations to the commission next week.

Fully implementing the commission's recommendations would cost an estimated $3.8 billion per year when phased in a decade from now.
