William Beadle fought for effective use of policies that set aside land to benefit education systems, particularly in South Dakota and other Midwestern states.

Connie Goddard joins In the Moment to examine his legacy and impact on schools even now. She also shares why she thinks he should rank among the founders of the education system.

Goddard is a writer and historian of education.
