Carl Horn, ALASBO President, Nenana City School District

What an amazing time we live in, to be able to work to educate children.  Broad public education of young people is a revolutionary idea, which started from the earliest period of American history.   Growing slowly at first then transformed to include ever more classes, groups, and ages of children over the past 200+ years.  Alaska as a state picked up the banner by including an explicit promise to all children.   When I have those invariable challenges in my work as a school business official, I step back and reflect on that broad sweep of history and the amazing part we now all play in providing public education to every student.
