even though south dakota educators should until the day happens that both the governor and the legislature is in dem control  fully by a rare occurance that the battle for south dakota to have education funding including teacher pay what it should be to compete with other states. should just figure that battle is just a doquiotie jump at windmills since every time the issue shows up in the legislature it winds up no where or only a small increase of funds. plus the fact that one proposal for a new tax source for teachers pay went no where and will go no where. never the less south dakota educators including the committe that is formed to study eduction for south dakota are still having hope including maybe that the next legislature will finaly get some of the message and at least try and do something  a small raise. as the battle of education and teachers getting some pay  they should start getting continues in south dakota which still keeps its title of dead last year and year .
