Student to Teacher Ratios 

Education commissioner Susan Gendron says the state is withdrawing its request to change the student-teacher ratio when it comes to Maine’s school funding formula.

It means no teaching positions will be cut if the proposed school district restructing plan goes into action.

Gendron says after talking to concerned residents, it became clear to her that those cuts would result in a loss of art instruction, advanced placement classes, and other instruction Gendron says are &quot:…fundamental to well-rounded student learning.&quot:
