(Rapid City, SD) — South Dakotans are getting a third chance to comment on the state’s proposed social studies standards. A hearing was held late last week at the Rushmore Hotel in Rapid City. Officials says more than 900 people expressed opposition to the standards since the previous meeting, compared to more than 100 in favor. Opponents say the standards are too complex and that not enough educators were involved in drafting them. Supporters say the standards address gaps in civics knowledge and provide a patriotic view of looking at history.
