One potentially little understood or even misunderstood ballot item is Referred Law 16, which asks voters to repeal HB 1234 by voting ‘no’ at the ballot box. I would ask, instead, that you vote ‘yes’ and uphold HB 1234.  I do so because I believe the five components of this law can significantly enhance the education of South Dakota students. These components include:

1. Scholarships for Students Pursuing Teaching Credentials in Shortage Areas: School boards, superintendents, and other educators have been asking for more than a decade for the state to assist with the problem of teacher shortages in certain areas.  Providing scholarships for college students in shortage areas, as identified by schools over time and thereby allowed to reflect the most recent labor market realities, is a great step in the right direction to solve this issue.
