SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- South Portland High School has been working hard to educate students about domestic violence in a lot of different ways over the past few years.

On Tuesday, students had the opportunity to share some of the work they have done in a round table discussion with Governor LePage.

LePage is a big advocate for domestic violence prevention, and he heard about the programs Coaching Boys Into Men and Coaching Girls Into Women. Those programs teach school athletes about healthy relationships on and off the field.

The Governor told the students that because 80% of the perpetrators of domestic violence are men, it is up to men to take personal responsibility to end it.
