    In my humble opinion, the rankings of the Maine colleges speaks to the hard work of the students as well as the schools themselves. You get as much out of your education as you put into it, and clearly they put in a great deal. Way to go!

    Glad to see Wilson Hess doing great things! He was a former president of Unity College and now UMFK! Two schools on the list guided by the same man, seems he knows something about higher education

    Someone please place this article on Lepage’s desk.  However, I wonder how many of those attending these schools are out- of- state students and what percentage of Maine students attend
    college out of state.  I am sure those numbers are available.

      You will have to translate it into small common words of one syllable before LePage would be able to comprehend it.
      .
      Like many bullies, Paul LePage huffs and puffs and belittles others to hide his own gross inadequacies.

    More great news about the state’s educational institutions. 

    This story, along with the news about College of the Atlantic’s  recent high acclaim, should be priority reading for that certain individual – who, with never a good word for Maine education, has never learned to say anything good.
