Education Indicators for Maine 2016

Educate Maine

This is the fourth installment of an annual report by Educate Maine, developed to explore and understand Maine’s entire education system beginning in early childhood and continuing throughout adulthood. Using ten critical indicators around access, participation, and performance, the report provides a snapshot of the state’s education system. Beyond promoting discussion, this paper serves as a call to action for increasing engagement, positive dialogue, and support for promising strategies amongst stakeholders so all Maine’s students receive the education they deserve.

Maine has one of the highest high school graduation rates in the country – a point of pride – but too many of those students aren't moving on to the next stage with all of the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed.
