District drops driver's ed program

Associated Press

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. -- The Fergus Falls school district is dropping its drivers' education program -- in part due to high gas prices.

District business manager Mark Masten said the school was dropping the program due to soaring gas prices, insurance costs and a lack of qualified instructors.

The program is scheduled to end by Sept. 1. Students enrolled in the program will be able to finish at a private driving school in Fergus Falls.
