UMaine Study Cited in Press Herald Report on School Principals

A story by the Portland Press Herald on the demands facing Maine high school principals cited a University of Maine study that came out last fall. The Press Herald spoke to George Marnik, an author of the Maine Principal Study and a lecturer in UMaine’s educational leadership program. Marnik said the study found almost 40 percent of Maine principals reported they felt overworked. The study also found that in 2011 the average Maine principal was responsible for 69 more students, had 53 more staff members and worked 12 more hours a week than in 2005.
