Project ANNA Student Survey.
Boyd, Marjorie, Comp.; Hena, Jim, Comp.
In reviewing the Alaskan Native Needs Assessment (Project ANNA), it was determined that one of the most important educational decision-makers was the student. This concern reflected the belief that in Alaskan Native communities, students and their desires are a potent factor in deciding which option (boarding school, boarding home program, state dormitory) to select for high school. The survey method was: (1) questionnaires were mailed to each school for school officials to distribute to students; (2) questionnaire content was outlined by the Project ANNA committee; and (3) the completed questionnaires were returned to the Indian Education Resource Center, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Responses were presented in graph forms. Data indicated that the Alaskan Native students would like to keep the boarding schools, the boarding home program, and village schools all as viable options. Many wanted to attend college or pursue some form of training past high school. They expressed a preference for the 2-world goal, to be prepared to live in or out of the village. The most important finding of the survey was the "Mobility Factor", referring to the movement from one high school program to another. It was discovered that 42% of the high school students had changed high schools. (FF)
