North Dakota is home to 110,000 public school students and another 4,000 make up our private schools.
About 15 of those students gather together every couple months to discuss the state of our districts with State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler.
Today the current student cabinet wrapped up their term at the state capital.
They offered their perspective on issues including school uniforms, district boundaries, commuting and bullying.
Each student came from a different city to represent schools across North Dakota.
McKenzie County rising sixth-grader Aidan Pelton says it’s all about “Building tomorrow’s leaders. I really like that because leadership in the community is very important to build a great community. And I think it’s important to do it with kids, not just adults so they can learn a bit more in life”
The student cabinet is made up of students ranging from third grade, all the way through college.
