1. What is the status of geographic education in your school?

Maine Geographic Alliance needs your help in assessing the status of geographic education in Maine. If you are a principal of a large school, you may want to forward this survey to an educator/department chair who can respond.

We know that you are busy; so we are only asking you to respond to 9 questions.
