Walker signs education bills at teacher welcome back day
FAIRBANKS — Gov. Bill Walker signed four education bills Friday morning at Lathrop High School as part of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District’s annual teacher welcome back and in-service day.
Walker, before signing the bills, spoke to Fairbanks teachers gathered in Hering Auditorium.
“We are a resource state, but our most important resources are our children and our students,” he said, noting that the state has made a financial turn in being able to forward-fund education for the first time this year.
