Web Extra: More than a School
Life in Bethel is getting back to normal after fire destroyed a building that housed the Kuskokwim Learning Academy and the Ayaprun Yup’ik Immersion school. When the immersion school began 20 years ago, it was on the frontiers of bilingual education and native language restoration.
In this web extra, former principals Agatha John-Shields and Steve O’Brien talk about the importance of language preservation. The full Frontiers program, Ayaprun: A School Goes On, will air Sunday, November 15 at 4:30 and 10:30 p.m.
