Highway 93 Construction Starts Monday

(AP) Legislation to shift money in Idaho’s public schools budget to pay for classroom technology and other reforms is headed to the state House of Representatives.  The Republican-dominated House Education Committee advanced the bill Tuesday on a 12-6 vote, with three GOP state lawmakers joining Democrats in opposition after four hours of public testimony and debate. The bill is the final piece of a reform plan authored by schools chief Tom Luna.  The plan redirects money in the schools budget for salaries to fund new technology in the classroom and a teacher pay-for-performance plan.  While critics argue it replaces teachers with technology, proponents say Idaho needs to restructure how its scarce education dollars are spent.  The bill, which passed the Senate last week, now heads to its final 2011 session hurdle.
