South Dakota voters overwhelmingly reject school reform referendum measure

South Dakota, like Idaho, also had a referendum measure on its ballot regarding teacher contracts; that state's measure asked voters whether they wanted to keep a law their Legislature passed phasing out tenure and imposing a merit-pay bonus system along with a scholarship program.
