Influential members of the Legislature have started talking about possibly raising the state’s minimum number of students it takes to keep qualify for state education funding.

Critics say the change could close more than sixty schools in small communities, disproportionately hurting rural Alaskans for the sake of short-term savings.
ROAD TO ANDERSONVILLE is a powerful story from Executive Producer David Schock about the men of Company K.
