Teaching integrity: Scott Bender's lessons deeper than just textbooks
The year was 2017 in the classroom of Red Wing social studies teacher Scott Bender. Each of us in the senior government class took out a piece of notebook paper and a pencil. Flipping through Powerpoint slides, Mr. Bender had us reflect on our own political positions by taking a quiz: "Are you a Democrat or Republican?"

New industrial tech machines encourage student growth at Red Wing High School
Red Wing High School's industrial technology classes are designed to encourage students to learn real-life skills. With new machine upgrades - thanks to 2018 referendum dollars - pupils get to work like professional welders, engineers and woodworkers. All of those professions are desperately looking for workers.
