LePage’s response was, "That's like giving my wife my checkbook. I’m telling you, it’s giving your …

Boys Literacy Research Featured In New Book Challenges Traditional Teaching, Kay Hyatt

General University of Maine Publications

A growing research base has established that while the shortfall in girls' science and math achievement is improving across all socioeconomic classes, boys' scores on reading and literacy are far below those of girls and continue to slide. Further, many popular media accounts characterize boys as being in trouble, both in school and in other areas of their emotional …

The Student Senate cut the Women's Center $200 of work-study funds in Tuesday night's Senate meeting.
