An Overall Education Plan for Rural Alaska.
Alaska Governor's Committee of Education, Juneau.
A report submitted by the Alaskan Governor's Committee on Education indicates that the quality of education in rural schools, both state-sponsored and Bureau of Indian Affairs-sponsored, is in need of improvement. This plan for school reorganization in Alaska recommends consolidation of small rural schools in favor of wider curricular offerings afforded by larger schools; all public schools of Alaska are ultimately to be subordinated to State control, including Bureau of Indian Affairs schools. The plan outlines criteria for establishing elementary, junior high, and regular and regional boarding high schools. The report concludes that a need exists for establishing regional comprehensive high schools with dormitory facilities to accommodate those students from remote areas who presently are being deprived of a secondary education due to lack of facilities.
