Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island will work together to create 21st-century schools that emphasize research, community learning and problem-solving skills, education commissioners from the four states announced Monday. The opening phase of the group's work will include a review of education policies in the four states and how they contribute to or detract from the consortium's overarching aims, said David Ruff, co-executive director of Maine's Great Schools Partnership, which will coordinate the consortium's efforts.
