Education Reform Battle Continues
The battle over education reform in Idaho will continue this week. The House of Representatives is set to possibly send two of the three bills attached to Superintendent Tom Luna’s plan to the governor’s desk. The teachers’ union is promising more demonstrations and there could also be more student walkouts. Last week saw student walkouts most of the week from around the state, all in protest of Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna’s Education Reform Plan. But while it looks like a huge number of students, teachers, and parents are against his plan Luna says he doesn’t believe they’re in the majority. In fact he says many of the students are being misinformed.
