The MBT community

Rural Alaskan communities like these present some of the greatest educational challenges in the United States.

The five rural Alaskan communities selected for this project vary widely in terms of location, local economy, population size, poverty levels, racial makeup, and income. By choosing communities that represent a cross-section of rural Alaska, the Leadership Team will be better able to make comparisons amongst project data and to evaluate how the program will transfer to alternate locations.
