Quotes

"We recognize that just because something may or may not have happened on school property doesn't mean it won't affect what happens in the school building."
"We have great students that make hard workers," Klobuchar said. "That's something that not everyone has to offer. The fact that North Dakota is hiring and we're hiring, it makes it a little competitive."
"Kids have been suspended unfortunately for things like too many truancies," he said. "You're out of school then you get kicked out of school further. That equation just doesn't add upup to us."
