Abstract

The proposed Maine Center for Arts Education in Portland would be a public, residential high school combining training in the arts with a core academic curriculum for juniors and seniors who want to pursue careers or studies in music, theater, dance, creative writing or visual arts. Critics of the proposed magnet school say money would be better spent to improve arts programs statewide. Supporters say the school would allow students who have taken all the arts classes at their schools to further their education and would benefit the larger community by positioning the school as a statewide resource. Supporters and critics of the school are watching the state's first magnet school, the Maine School for Science & Mathematics in Limestone. Details, related editorial.
