Seeds of Peace announces March 8 Maine Youth Summit on Education
PORTLAND | Fifty high school student leaders from 13 schools across the state are meeting to find solutions to challenges facing Maine’s education system. The Maine Youth Summit on Education takes place on March 8 in Portland.
Delegates are members of Seeds of Peace and include first generation Americans, multi-generational Mainers, and immigrants.
Their goal is to better Maine’s education system, and they have spent several months examining Maine’s school standards, resources for students with learning disabilities, ELL programs, and the economics of public education.
Edie Smith, State Director for US Senator Angus King, will attend and gubernatorial candidate Eliot Cutler will join the Seeds and high school principals and superintendents at the Summit. Other state and local leaders, including Gov. Paul LePage, have been invited to attend and participate on panels addressing Maine’s education system.
