Of all our economic development strategies, education is the one with the greatest return on investment. Investment in the education of Maine people creates lifelong learners, opens pathways to promising careers, and produces civically engaged citizens. The 2015 Education Indicators Report for Maine
has been developed to explore and better understand Maine’s education pipeline from preschool through postsecondary education. Our focus is on the 10 Indicators we have identified which we believe best measure Maine’s educational performance. The ten Indicators that we measure follow the path of each Maine child as he or she grows and learns.
