Conservative college’s curriculum gets foothold in S. Dakota

              FILE - South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Feb. 25, 2022, in Orlando, Fla. While Republican governors have embraced Hillsdale College’s education for K-12 students, Noem has been perhaps the most enthusiastic. Larry Arrn, the school's president, even said in a speech last year that Noem had “offered to build us an entire campus in South Dakota.” (AP Photo/John Raoux, File)
