“Putting kids first in education” was the theme of a Town Meeting in Philip hosted by Governor Mike Rounds and his staff.
School district patrons attending last Thursday’s meeting got a lesson on school district funding from the governor.
Rounds said he would present some figures, and then take questions from the audience. “We’re here to learn,” he said. “We’re here to learn what’s going right and what’s not.”
The first figures Rounds presented were demographic. Census figures show the population in the state growing older.
