SDEA At The Capitol

Last month, during his budget address, Governor Dennis Daugaard proposed a three percent increase in state aid to schools.  While school districts and educators appreciate the hike, they say it doesn't fill the gap left by a 10-percent cut three years ago.  South Dakota Education Association president Sandy Arseneault expects state funding for education to be a major issue before this year's legislature.  She discussed the SDEA's presence at the capitol as well as the debate over Common Core standards.
