BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Members of the Idaho House Education Committee have approved a bill that says parents have both a right and an obligation to participate in their child’s education. Republican Rep. Janet Trujillo of Idaho Falls sponsored the bill, saying it was important that state law reinforce parental rights. Several parents also testified in support of the bill on Tuesday, with some saying they wanted more control over what their child does and doesn’t do in school. Emilee Murdoch, whose four kids attend school in the Blackfoot School District, told the committee that she wanted the power to opt her kids out of standardized testing and she feared the bill didn’t go far enough. The committee sent the bill to the full House with a do pass recommendation.
