Legislative bill would help DL recovery school stay open

Email News Alerts

The state that pioneered the recovery school movement, and once boasted a baker’s dozen of these so-called “sober high schools” within its borders, is now struggling to keep them open.

Minnesota State Rep. Paul Marquart, chair of the House’s education finance committee, is doing his best to reverse that trend.
