Fairman Quoted in MPBN Report on Communities Voting to Leave RSUs

Janet Fairman, an associate professor of education at the University of Maine, spoke with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network for a report titled “School consolidation: 5 Maine communities to vote on leaving RSUs.” Fairman, who has researched the initial effects of consolidation on districts across the state, said most school districts in Maine did not want to be forced to consolidate. Changing from local control to a regional perspective on the welfare of students in other communities is a difficult shift, she says.
