Educational Needs of Alaska. A Summary by Region and Ethnic Group, 1972-73.
World-Wide Education and Research Inst., Salt Lake City, UT.
During 1972 Worldwide Education and Research Institute conducted a statewide needs assessment in Alaska. Initially more than 2,000 Alaskans responded to an extensive questionnaire or interview about the State's schools. After gathering the data, 9 groups of representative Alaskans were convened for documenting and validating critical educational concerns. These groups were convened according to geographic region or selected ethnic grouping. The study consisted of: critical educational needs in Alaska; analysis of educational concerns; working papers for an operational philosophy of education; goals and objectives; next steps to be taken; critical educational needs of the Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and Bethel regions; and critical educational needs of the Tlingits, Eskimos, Athabascan Indians, and Aleuts. The educational needs for the various regions and ethnic groups were described for learner needs, identification of the target group of learners, criteria, criticality of need, consistent level of generality, and maximum time allowable.
