A Modest Proposal. An Expression of Children's Needs by People in Rural Alaska with Recommendations for Positive Change.
Alaska State-Operated Schools, Anchorage.
The specific concerns and recommendations that the people of rural Alaska made about their educational system are documented in this report. The major need areas indicated in the reports include bicultural curriculums and bilingual instruction, the relationship between the community and the school, local control and local planning, and the availability of secondary education in local communities. These reports were submitted to the Alaska State-Operated System by the Aleut League, the Bering Straits Native Association, the Bristol Bay Native Association, the Copper River Native Association, the Northwest Alaska Native Association, the Southwest Alaska Native Association, and the Tanana Chief's Conference. In many cases the ideas of the parents are presented in their own words. A summary of needs and objectives is presented in each report. (PS)
