Education in Alaska

Budget cuts have been effecting alaska’s education system on all levels, reaching from administrators to teachers to students. Our goal is tell the story of how those budget cuts have affected the school system in Fairbanks as a whole. It seems to be common knowledge that the budget cuts have negatively affected education in Fairbanks, but what we want to find out is what specifically those effects are.

Form:

We will tell our story in the form of a video documentary, taking audio and written interviews and using images or video clips to illustrate the stories being told.

Sources:

Most of our information will be coming from members of the the education department and the people that we interview. We will also be getting more specific information from AlaskaLegislature.tv, specifically their video on how funds have been allocated this year.
