I was pleased by the Daily News' choice to print several
large color photos of bloody animal carcasses being skinned
as part of a program at Russian Mission School ("Learning
old ways," Feb. 15). The photos showed what the school
was doing for students. These photos caught the readers' attention
and drew them into the article.
News needs to do more stories about the achievements of Alaska's
schools. The photos were not glorifying killing or death but
showing the beauty of the subsistence way of life. More photos
need to be shown of how educators are reaching students in
these changing times. People who were offended need to get
real and remember which state they live in.
