Dakota Midday: Education Update with SDPB's Kealey Bultena

The governor's plan to overhaul education funding continues to be key legislation during the 2016 Session. SDPB's Kealey Bultena has been following education topics closely as the process to raise teacher salaries continues to unfold and, some fear, unravel in Pierre. Bultena joins Lori Walsh to talk about the progress of HB1182 (a bill to increase the sales tax in order to sustainably fund education), rule 5-17, which was used to delay debate of the bill this week, and HB1008, a bill that seeks to redefine bathroom use for transgender students.
