SD Board of Education Standards held public forum on the social studies standards in Sioux Falls Monday

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(WNAX)-  The South Dakota Board of Educational Standards met again Monday in Sioux Falls, gathering public input on the proposed new social studies standards.

Shannon Malone with the state Department of Education said there will be a training and transition period.

Aaron Livesay (live-a-say) of Sioux Falls says the changes need to be made.

Paul Harens, (harns) a retired teacher from Yankton says the proposed standards are too complex and rigid.

There will be at least two more public hearings before a decision is made on the new standards some time next spring.
