Report on State Education Commissioner’s Remarks to Future Teachers

The Bangor Daily News reported on comments made Wednesday by Maine Education Commissioner Stephen Bowen who met on campus with UMaine education students. Speaking about new directions in teaching that Maine’s future and working teachers should consider as they go forward in their careers, Bowen told the UMaine students, who are in an intensive one-year master of arts in teaching program, that educators should base student advancement on performance and mastery of materials rather than traditional age-based protocols.
