LD 1791, "An Act to Initiate Education Reform in Maine," proposes replacing the state's existing high school graduation requirements with a set of learning results developed over the past two years by the state Task Force on Learning Results. The proposed requirements would establish state academic standards for the first time in Maine's public schools, and include six guiding principles, 99 content standards and close to 900 performance indicators. Supporters of the bill point out that the learning results provide a framework rather that establishing a statewide curriculum. The only funding the bill contains is $2 million for professional development, which some observers say isn't enough. Details.
