Education Funding A Top Issue For Gubernatorial Candidates

August 29, 2014, 6:51 PM by Ben Dunsmoor

Education Funding A Top Issue For Gubernatorial Candidates
HURON, SD -

Funding South Dakota schools took center stage at the State Fair on Friday as the three candidates running for governor squared off in the second debate of the season.

Democrat Susan Wismer criticized Republican Governor Dennis Daugaard for the cuts he made to education as part of a statewide effort to balance the budget when he came into office four years ago.

Daugaard says schools have seen increased funding since those cuts.

Independent Mike Myers says he'd make education a priority if he were elected.

"I think we need to take those corporate boys and girls and lobbyists out of both education and out of health care," Myers said.

"They didn't pay lip service to it during campaigns and then cut funding," Wismer said.

"I felt the best course was to just address it all at once. Deal with that deficit and get us back into balance. From that point, we've had increase after increase to education each year," Daugaard said.

The candidates are scheduled to debate again in October, including a televised debate on KELOLAND TV.?
