"News" piece on a professional support program for rookie educators developed by the state in response to a shortage of public school teachers and the implementation of labor-intensive reforms like the Maine Learning Results program. Judith Cox, project director for the Department of Education, says too many new teachers leave the profession early due to lack of support during the transition from their own education to the public school classroom. Funded with a three-year, $2.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, eight "regional mentors" trained last summer at the University of Maine. These mentors now oversee the efforts of more than 72 local mentors engaged in mentoring first- and second-year teachers.
