Murkowski Creating “Alaskan Education Library” Online

Inspired by Hearing, Alaskans Invited to Share Innovations for Clearinghouse of Information

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Senator Lisa Murkowski is holding a Senate field hearing at the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention this afternoon, bringing Alaskans involved in education together to share new ideas and success stories from their classrooms.  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 – the “Alaskan Education Library.”

“I’m 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,” said Senator Murkowski. “That’s why I want everyone to be able to compare notes, and am asking them to e-mail me 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.  Click here to go directly to that page.

Senator Murkowski’s field hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions takes place today at 4pm, and will be live-streamed online: http://1.usa.gov/wEoCZo
