Bowdoin’s Education Department, McKeen Center Sponsor Island School Project Archives

For several years, the Education Department and the McKeen Center have sponsored the Island School Project, which allows students to experience the challenges, tensions and possible solutions of rural island education by spending time with students and teachers from a rural Maine island school, both on the island and at Bowdoin.
