School superintendents from around the state are taking a fact-finding trip this week to investigate a new style of learning. News Director Leslie Stratmoen talked with one of the local school leaders to learn about the new style and what the school officials hoped to learn.
Local Superintendent Marty Kobza of Sheridan County School District 1 said he's taking a trip this week to Arizona with educators from across the state to check out a new style of education.
I caught up with him before the Whitney Benefits dinner Monday night at Sheridan College. He said there will be state lawmakers joining the superintendents and other school officials for the visits to two schools, one in Phoenix and the other in Tucson.
He said there will be a contingency of about 50 people going on the trip, which, he said, is being sponsored by the state department of education.
