Abstract

As communities across Maine bridle at outmoded state regulations for new school buildings and diminished funding for construction, some communities are taking their educational fates into their own hands and are building the schools they want with their own money. Both Camden and Falmouth recently opened world-class new high schools financed in large part with local money. Other towns from York and Yarmouth to Vinalhaven and Searsport are overturning the old rule that only state funding could cure their school problems and they're finding solutions at the local level.
