U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski is holding a Senate field hearing during the the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention this afternoon in Anchorage.
Murkowski is bringing Alaskans involved in education together to share new ideas and success stories from their classrooms, and due to the statewide interest in the topic and abundance of effective approaches, all educators, school board members, Native organizations and Tribes are being invited to submit their lessons learned in an online clearinghouse being created on Murkowski’s website, dubbed the “Alaskan Education Library.”
Murkowski said that she’s “Excited and proud to be bringing together Alaskans working in education who think outside the box and get results, but it’s clear that there are so many more stories and ideas that deserve to be heard.” The state’s senior senator also said “That’s why she wants everyone to be able to compare notes, and is asking them to e-mail het with their innovative methods so we can put them all together online.”
Any Alaskan with a success story to share of how their innovations have improved student performance can e-mail them to AlaskaEdSuccess@Murkowski.Senate.Gov.
Once the entries are received, a new page will be created at Senator Murkowski’s website, located under the “Students” tab at the top of the Senator’s website.
