What is Wrong with the Bargaining Law? When Maine’s public employee bargaining law was adopted in 1969, it was intended to improve the relationship between educators and school boards. It was designed to balance the interest of educators against that of the public as represented by the school board. Educators were to have rights and negotiable interests as employees while school boards were assured sufficient authority to preside over the educational programs of their students. Over the years a conservative judiciary has greatly expanded the prerogatives of the school boards and severely undercut the negotiable interests of educators. Beneath the cumulative weight of dozens of decisions limiting educators’ voices, that initial balance failed, tilting the law dramatically in favor of school boards’ interests. As a result, the law has two major public policy flaws that threaten the quality of education in Maine’s schools: 1. The current bargaining process does not establish fair market values for educator salaries, insurance or retirement. This makes it extremely difficult to recruit and retain high quality educators for our schools. Inadequate compensation is particularly acute in property-poor, rural schools, creating an unequal educational system across Maine.

The People and History of Maine
Physical Geography
Natural Regions
All of Maine was once covered by glaciers, the last of which receded about 10,000 years ago. Because of the glaciers, much of Maine is covered with stones, boulders, and clays. Many of the hills and mountains have been rounded, lakes have been formed, and river courses have been changed. Although glaciers covered all of Maine, there are nevertheless substantial physiographic differences in the regions of the state.
Maine can be divided into three major physiographic areas, or natural regions: the White Mountain section, the New England Upland, and the Seaboard Lowland. These three regions are part of the New England province, which in turn forms part of the Appalachian Region.
The Seaboard Lowland in Maine lies between the New England Upland and the Atlantic Ocean. It varies in width from about 30 km (about 20 mi) near the New Hampshire border to about 100 km (60 mi) near the New Brunswick border. This natural region rises to about 120 to 150 m (about 400 to 500 ft) near its border with the New England Upland. The Seaboard Lowland has mostly gently rolling terrain, but in isolated spots rugged mountains and steep hills are found. An example is Cadillac Mountain (466 m/1,530 ft), on Mount Desert Island. It is the highest mountain on the Atlantic coast north of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Berwick Academy's Fogg Building, with its many Whitman windows ( Berwick Academy One day in 1994, while involved with the parents' association at my daughter's school in our town of South Berwick, Maine, I heard someone mention an unusual stained-glass window. It was supposed to be in Berwick Academy's Fogg Memorial Building, a Romanesque landmark completed 100 years earlier to house both the school and the town's library. Dating to 1791 and the oldest school in Maine, Berwick Academy claims among its graduates the author Sarah Orne Jewett (1849-1909). Jewett's name was somehow linked with this window. At Fogg Memorial, its gold cupola presiding from a forested hilltop over a rural valley fast succumbing to suburban development, I asked where to see the window, but nobody knew. I looked around and discovered on the second floor, in a corner of a math classroom, a drab specimen some seven feet tall and the width of the old roll-up shade it was hiding behind. Its dedication, "To the memory of many soldiers and sailors, pupils of this school who fought for their country," was lettered on the glass, along with a verse:

Publicity and Advocacy
Publicity and advocacy use information and documentation of arts events and education practices to inform decision makers, whether those decision makers are choosing a performance for their family to attend or deciding how to spend limited school funds. Decision makers need to know about arts activities, events and opportunities. They need accurate information about the benefits of learning in and through the arts, and of participating in the arts as both audience members and creators. The arts and arts events bring communities together, improve learning and teaching, contribute to economic development, and improve the job market in an area. Publicity is information offered in a format that is available, accessible, and exciting to the public. Publicity may come in the form of newspaper, radio or television news articles, public service announcements, posters on community bulletin boards, electronic bulletin boards, or community or school newsletters. Advocacy is getting the right information and documentation, plus your thinking, to the right decision makers at the right time in an effort to have them see and support your point of view. All of this is an on-going task and process. Often specific projects or opportunities focus our energy on publicity or advocacy.

- - Dr. Eugene Hickock, U.S. Undersecretary of Education. "Maryland applauds the National Association of State Boards of Education for the timely release of its study group report on e-learning. For too long, the classroom has established the boundaries of learning for many students. The Internet is removing many of those boundaries and opening new learning opportunities for both students and teachers. Maryland is poised to capitalize on these opportunities and the work of the NASBE study group further reinforces what we plan to do to improve the quality of instruction in our public schools." - - Dr. Nancy S. Grasmick, State Superintendent of Schools, Maryland.
