BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gov. Doug Burgum is setting up a new task force aimed at improving North Dakota's public education system.

Burgum says changes are needed in how the state's students are instructed to meet the needs of the 21st century economy and to include technological advances. The Innovative Education Task Force will identify new, creative teaching methods and make recommendations to the governor and Legislature.

The Bismarck Tribune says it will have 11 to 15 people, including educators, those involved in youth development and business and community leaders. The group will meet over the next 15 months.
