A Prospectus for Rural Education in Alaska.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
"An Overall Education Plan for Rural Alaska" was published in 1963, revised in 1966, and subsequently revised and printed in 1968. The purpose of the present booklet, published in 1969, is to develop in more detail the conditions and agreements found in the previous publications and to document recommendations made by a congressional delegation, officials from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, state representatives, and native leaders. Two concepts are suggested for meeting rural Alaska's educational needs: large regional high schools and area secondary or junior high schools. For analysis purposes, Alaska is divided into 6 regional areas. Enrollment figures, trends, and projections are offered. Recommendations for the location of regional schools, estimated construction costs, operating expenses for rural schools, and Alaska's boarding home program are discussed. Information is given on boarding student policy and on educational programs designed to meet Alaska's needs. A related document is ED 026 194. (SW)
