Thank you to the Argus Leader for focusing attention on the need for higher education in South Dakota. This is a vital policy discussion for our state. The Board of Regents jump started that dialogue by setting a goal that 65 percent of young South Dakotans have a post-secondary credential by the year 2025. This goal was subsequently adopted by the state’s Workforce Development Council and supported by the S.D. Department of Education. It is important to note that the credentials included in this 65 percent goal represent the full range of post-secondary options: traditional four-year college degrees as well as two-year associate degrees, certificates and apprenticeships.
