North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum understands that every child is unique and deserves an educational experience that best fits their individual learning style.
In his State of the State Address, Gov. Burgum touted the state’s Learn Everywhere policy that passed during the 67th Legislative Assembly in 2021.
“The past six years, these educators have helped North Dakota make significant progress in education policy… Whether it’s the innovation waiver that allows local schools boards to redesign the school experience, or the Learn Everywhere policy that allows students to earn credit outside of the school walls… North Dakota has created layers of flexibility that allow our public system to determine the most effective ways to support a student-centered learning environment.”
Where did your most important life lessons come from: inside or outside of a classroom? We know that a lot of learning happens outside of school, and students should get credit for learning no matter where it happens. North Dakota’s Learn Everywhere policy does just that.
The yes. every kid. team looks forward to working with North Dakotans to build on bottom-up approaches that respect the dignity of every kid.
