Attendees discuss education and community in Kulm

How can we make our educational system work to prepare our students for life in our rural communities?

That conversation went in a lot of different directions after three short speaker presentations, but the common thread was making education relevant and meaningful to rural students.

“We’ve all talked to students who are not exactly enthused with their educational process,” said Dan Guericke of the South Dakota Innovation Lab. “They go there as something to endure until they graduate and can do something interesting. There’s really no need for that. Life is interesting. Why aren’t we bringing it into the classroom?”
