MEPRI Researcher, Dr. Erika Stump, was one of the twelve members of the Maine Legislature's Task Force on Public-private Partnerships to Support Public Education. In addition to participating in meetings this summer, Dr. Stump shared MEPRI research on Social Impact Bonds, provided expertise regarding plans for developing feasibility studies and pilot programs, and contributed to the final report.
The Task Force report will be shared in a public briefing with the Maine Legislature's Joint Standing Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs later this winter.
