PLACE-BASED EDUCATION means learning about the immediate environment and cultural history and heritage, too, as part of a student's overall education. Next time on KTD our in-studio guests, educators Paul Ongtooguk and Lynda Prince, talk about the philosophy behind the movement and explain its origins. And we'll hear from Dr. Ben Chavis, a School Choice supporter who is critical of the idea that schools should teach culture.
PLUS, hear a special report on how educators are incorporating Alaska Native traditions and language in to their classrooms and curricula - we take you to Kotzebue and Barrow to learn more.
