‘Maine Schools in Focus’ goes on summer break

“Maine Schools in Focus,” an informative, issue-oriented feature on the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development website, is taking a break until the new school year begins in the fall.

Since launching in mid-March, the college has published eight research-based briefings as part of the “Maine Schools in Focus” series. Each post has focused on a topic related to public school education in the state, ranging from funding for special education to the appropriate workload for school principals. All of the “Maine Schools in Focus” posts are available to read anytime on the College of Education and Human Development website.

Editor Gordon Donaldson, professor emeritus of education at UMaine, is still accepting submissions for new “Maine Schools in Focus” posts to be published when the series resumes. Details and contact information are available on the “Maine Schools in Focus” page.
