Transfer of Standards-Based Education in Rural Alaska: An Analysis of the Politics of Educational Transfer in the Tikishla School District
by Timothy E. Jester
This article examines the politics of educational transfer in a rural Alaskan school district with schools in two Alaska Native villages and one non-Native community. The author examines why and how the district imported standards-based education. While the district presented its reform as a rational, consensus-driven policy process, this conventional version of the reform was disrupted by the superintendent's utilization of political strategies that promoted his personal agenda.
