Effects of the Oil Spill on Alaskan Education.
Oldaker, Lawrence Lee
Oil-industry-produced revenues, help finance Alaskan state and local governmental services including education. Capital losses incurred by the Exxon Corporation and by commerical fisheries as a consequence of the Exxon Valdez oil spill caused an economic recession, the result being diminished financing for a number of governmental programs and services including Alaskan education. Legislation known as the "spill bills," statutory proposals for curtailments in educational services that became law, were designed to handle the recession and the concomitant diffusion of state monies.
