Farley Op-Ed Defends STEM Schools

An opinion column by University of Maine associate professor of computing and information science Jonathan Farley about the Baxter Academy for Technology and Science appeared in the Portland Daily Sun newspaper. Farley, who is also a math consultant and a member of the advisory board for Baxter Academy, argued that schools specializing in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curricula tend to produce the best and brightest math and science students, raise interest levels in math and science for many others, and do not do so at the expense of public schools.
