Blue Ribbon Task Force on Education Public Hearings Schedule

Governor Daugaard appointed a task force to consider education funding in South Dakota. Because this task force seems to be heavily stacked in favor of the administration’s agenda – the education reform agenda – it is vital that parents and all members of the public attend and comment at the scheduled public meetings in June. Please find a city close to you and plan on attending. This is your opportunity to share directly with the members of the task force, how the education mandates out of Pierre and Washington are affecting you, your children and your community.
