Culture in the Classroom

I thought the article was well written and thought provoking. I just can’t help but wonder when will humanity learn, when will groups of people stop attempting to exterminate others and their cultural beliefs? I have hope that the future of Alaskan Education will be able to make gains in areas that were depleted in the years past. In one school I work in there is community and educational effort to teach the Native language and provide a infrastructure that follows Native ways of teaching. However,just writing that I can tell you that the majority of the teachers are not Native and perhaps this slows the process. Although this should not be confused with inhibiting the process as some responded. As someone that is not Native I believe I can support the community and cultural goals with my willingness to learn and dedication to cultural restoration.
