Preparing Students for College: How are Maine High Schools Doing?
04/24/2013   Reported By: Tom Porter

In recent years, there has been a lot of discussion in Maine about whether the state's high schools are doing a good enough job preparing students for college. Researchers at the University of Southern Maine recently looked into that question, and found that many of the common perceptions about Maine high school graduates going on to college are not accurate. David Silvernail, the report's co-author, is the director of the Center for Education Policy, Applied Research and Evaulation at USM. He spoke with Maine Things Considered host Tom Porter.
