Education has been the subject of intense debate at the Legislature this year, and for good reason. In Anchorage, Juneau and Fairbanks, hundreds of teachers are getting laid off as a result of classroom funding cuts. For the sake of Alaska’s economic future, now is the time to reverse those funding cuts and reinvest in public education.
For good reason, local Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development Commissions have weighed in to support education funding. They have said that the business community needs a good public education system.
