Schools in Denmark-Olar are old and inadequate, a problem in many rural districts

As the economy has recovered, legislators have given all K-12 schools more money. But big issues remain unresolved. One example is the Denmark-Olar school district which is home to some of the oldest and inadequate school buildings.
