Policy priorities for South Dakota's educators

This interview originally aired on "In the Moment" on SDPB Radio.

The bills debated in South Dakota's House and Senate can impact classrooms across the state. Especially in terms of teacher pay, support services, curriculums, testing and other issues.

And the teacher shortage is top of mind for educators and administrators.

Sandra Waltman is the director of communications and government relations at the South Dakota Education Association. She discusses a few of her advocacy group's priorities this session.
