The Small High School Question: Alaska's Uneasy Compromise.
Northern Review: A Multidisciplinary Journal of the Arts and Social Sciences of the North, n12-13 p70-79 Sum-Win 1994
Boarding schools were the only option for rural high school students in Alaska until 1976, when the state began building many, very small, village high schools following a class action law suit. Selective, academic boarding schools continue to be an option. A survey of rural households found community satisfaction and improved student outcomes as a result of this compromise. (SV)
