Jones, Ken; Ongtooguk, Paul
Phi Delta Kappan, v83 n7 p499-503, 550 Mar 2002
Describes certain historical and cultural issues associated with the low academic achievement of Alaska Native students in Alaska public schools. Argues that high-stakes testing alone will not improve the academic performance of Alaska Native students; in fact, it may exacerbate the problem. Recommends the adoption of a new generation of accountability systems. (PKP)
