First magnet schools to open in fall

Vermont’s first magnet schools will open this fall. Two Burlington elementary schools will re-open as district-wide magnet schools — one with an emphasis on arts, and the other focusing on sustainability.

Magnet Schools

The first two magnet schools in Vermont will open next fall in Burlington.  We talk with one of the school’s principals, Paula Bowen, and with Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca.  Also, one UVM student is studying what students should eat before they take an exam, and we go hunting for fiddleheads.
