Head's up: Local film unearths challenges of higher education
The American dream embraces educational opportunity as an equalizing force, a tool for smashing glass ceilings and class assumptions. Documentary film, “Alaska College Track 2,” explores these assumptions and hopes as several Native students begin their first year at the University of Alaska.
The first segment of the series introduced these students as high schoolers with high hopes. Now coursework, social life and cultural identity influence how they adapt. Even if you missed first segment of the series, don’t miss "College Track 2" by KTOO-TV and the University of Alaska Foundation. It airs tonight at 9 p.m. on KAKM channel 7.
