Gov. Noem seeks $900,000 to revise U.S. history curriculum in state’s public schools

Gov. Kristi Noem has proposed $900,000 in one-time funds for curriculum to help meet her goal of teaching South Dakota’s students “why the U.S. is the most special nation in the history of the world.”

Noem stated her educational goals on Tuesday while delivering the governor’s annual State of the State Address to formally kick off the legislative session, an event which in years past was followed by a press conference and media availability, but less access this year.
