As Heard on Morning Line: Education is Alaska's Business Rally

Koahnic Broadcast Corporation

Today's guests on Morning Line are from an organization called Great Schools Alaska - Anchorage chapter - both Suzanne Little and Alyse Galvin share the title of Education Advocate.  According to Little, the group was founded by a group of mothers who got together because they cared about the quality of education in Alaska.

The group's event this weekend aims to show the connection education has to good business, as well as advocate for funding schools.

Galvin says the event features students, including the talents of a student musical group called "The Vinyl Floors."  The band includes upright bass, guitar and fiddle, and what appears to be a viola strummed like an ukelele.  The Vinyl Floors also has a CD release party tonight, the 19th, at 6:15 at Service High School.
