Anchorage-centric

I called Mike Hawker's office today to find out if his education taskforce had any meetings in Bush Alaska planned. Those, I was informed, have all been canceled by the committee, in favor of meetings exclusively in Anchorage.

So it seems that the committee charged with addressing the disparity between urban and rural school districts won't even get to see what a rural school district looks like. That sure inspires confidence they'll do a good job.

Taking a quick look at precedent, the Alaska Climate Impact Assessment Commission is meeting in Kotzebue next week after meetings in Anchorage and Juneau. They did not appear to have too much difficulty getting their schedules to mesh.
