Imagine a classroom where students dance the lifecycle of a seed or learn about food production by meeting farmers and eating local food. Those are activities that are planned for the state’s first two magnet schools. The schools will focus on arts and sustainability and will be part of the Burlington School District in the fall.

VPR’s Jane Lindholm talks with one of the school’s principals, Paula Bowen, and with Vermont’s Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca about how magnet schools fit into our education system, and how the model could be spread statewide.
