ND state lawmaker seeks school super's jobA North Dakota state lawmaker and former school administrator is running for North Dakota superintendent of public instruction.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota state lawmaker and former school administrator is running for North Dakota superintendent of public instruction.
David Monson (MUN’-son) says if he's elected, he'll put greater emphasis on science and math instruction and technical education.
Monson says his legislative experience will be helpful in pushing his initiatives as school superintendent. He has been in the North Dakota House for 20 years.
Monson is a former school superintendent in Adams, Nekoma and Edinburg. He retired three years ago. His superintendent campaign means he won't be running for re-election to the House this year.
Monson and former Grand Forks teacher Max Laird are the declared candidates for North Dakota school superintendent so far.
Mandan School Board President Kirsten Baesler (KEER’-sten BAYZ’-lur) is announcing her own candidacy Thursday.
