Education Reform Opponents Present Signatures To Sec. Of State
Signed petitions to put Idaho’s new education reform laws on the ballot in November were presented to the secretary of state’s office Monday afternoon. Idahoans for Responsible Education Reform and the Idaho Education Association were required to collect 47,432 hundred verified signatures on each of the three petitions. Dozens of volunteers helped carry the petitions to the secretary of state’s office. County clerks across the state have already verified signatures, which means the laws will be on the ballot in November 2012. The vote will be a simple majority.
