Deposition Exhibit #4 - Testimony of Loretta Muktoyuk

ATTEN: Beverly Masek

P.O. Box 59
Nome, AK 99762

My name is Loretta Muktoyuk originally from King Island and my residency is in Nome.

I would like to make comments on The Education Task Force.

Educational philosophy should begin within the family home when the children are young and nurtured as the children are growing. Teaching children to learn at a young age at home would enforce good learning habits before they enter school.

Parents should yet involved with their children with homework and set time for them to complete their homework. Or ask for tutors to help with subjects they are having problems with, if parents can not help them.

Before school starts teachers should get themselves involved with community activities in small communities, so they can get to know the people.

The school should work more closely with Kawerak, Inc ., Regional Corporation, Colleges, Universities and BIA to find out more about training centers, colleges, and universities to prepare the students for training or higher education. Invite the agencies as guest speakers.

Teachers, administrators, parents need to work together to understand each other in order to have good working relationship. And I think good working relationships make better educators.
