Kaden, Bonnie, Ed.
The large number of requests for general information on Alaska has resulted in compilation of this booklet. The Alaskan public school system, composed of district schools and state-operated schools, is discussed. Correspondence study, adult education programs, institutions of higher learning, teacher qualifications, and the role of the Bureau of Indian Affairs are briefly examined. Programs to meet Alaska's educational needs, especially the needs of rural school children, are related. A historical sketch of Alaska and information on its present economy and government are included. The geographic division of Alaska and the distribution of Eskimos, Indians, and Aleuts are described. Various facts and figures on Alaska conclude the document. (CM)
