Future of School Choice

The Vermont Department of Education is holding a hearing on the future of education in Vermont. There is a strong movement in Montpelier toward School District Consolidation, which will likely eliminate school choice in tuitioning towns, and which will effect the students of LiHigh School.

Beginning at 4:30 pm on February 27, 2014, those wishing to speak at the public hearing may sign up outside of the theater of the Rutland High School at 22 Stratton Road in Rutland. The hearing will be held between 5pm and 6:30pm.

This public hearing allows an opportunity for individuals to make a two to three minute speech. If the future of education in Vermont is important to you please attend this hearing and stay informed.

Hi, I'm Kyle. I'm an advisor at LiHigh School. I've been involved in progressive education since I was in high school. I was an original member (and student representative) of the Progressive Program at Green Mountain College, and for my Master's degree, I attended Goddard College, which started the trend toward progressive education in the 1960s. Along with teaching at LiHigh School, I teach courses in creative writing and communications at Green Mountain College. I live with my wife and daughter in Poultney.


  1. Kyle I wish I had seen this sooner, then I would have attended. Your right, this would definitely affect our students.
    Can we write to Vermont on this or not?
