GOP governor candidate doesn’t think the emphasis on tech ed is hurting universities.
HURON, S.D. (KELO.com) — As the campaign for governor enters its final weeks, Congresswoman Kristi Noem is outlining her education plan.
Noem says one of her major areas of focus is on ensuring students have the job skills and training needed to land high paying jobs.
In addition to expanding technical education programs in the state’s high schools, Noem would also like to see those opportunities extended to middle school students.
Noem says she doesn’t believe the recent emphasis on technical education is hurting the state’s four-year institutions.
Noem says she would work with the Board of Regents to help reduce the cost of a traditional degree.
Republican Noem is running against Libertarian Kurt Evans and Democrat Billie Sutton.
