SD Secretary of Education answers questions regarding new social studies standards

This segment is from SDPB's monthly news program, South Dakota Focus, hosted by Jackie Hendry.

Secretary of Education Tiffany Sanderson says the controversy surrounding the department's proposed standards was the result of misunderstandings and miscommunication. But she says it's a good opportunity to reflect on how the process can be improved for the benefit of all students.

She joined me recently in SDPB's Sioux Falls studio to discuss the process...and to give an update on the use of the Oceti Sakowin Essential Understandings.

Jackie is based out of SDPB's Sioux Falls Studio.
