A new beginning for South Dakota lawmakers
Guest column by Keith Moore
Americans on both sides of the aisle have grown weary of watching their elected representatives not only fail to deliver on their campaign promises, but focus their attention on the wrong priorities. This past election cycle revealed how a solid majority of Americans view our nation to be headed in the wrong direction and away from the values and top concerns of the people. In South Dakota, people are rightly frustrated.
But there is hope for South Dakota in the wake of the midterm elections. South Dakota lawmakers now have the chance to usher in greater prosperity in their state by recommitting themselves to solving the problems plaguing their communities.
One important policy issue affecting South Dakota is educational freedom. By investing in education reform, lawmakers can empower families to freely pursue the best education available for their children, no matter their ZIP code, income level or socioeconomic status. South Dakota legislators can expand school choice by restructuring the flow of school funding to follow each student instead of tying it to individual schools or school districts.
VIEWPOINT: South Dakota GOP should offer voters a vision for the state’s future
