Education in Vermont

Education in Vermont consists of public and private schools in Vermont, including the University of Vermont, private colleges, and secondary and primary schools.

The Vermont State Board of Education or VSBE, is appointed by the governor with approval by the senate. It administers public education in the state. Local municipalities and their respective school districts operate individual public schools but the VSBE audits performance of public schools. The VSBE also makes recommendations to state leaders concerning education spending and policies.
