Idaho School’s Chief Regrets Not Focusing on Voters

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s public schools chief says he should have focused more time and energy in getting the public behind his broad plan for overhauling the state’s education system. A year ago, voters crushed Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna’s Students Come First plan for bringing change to Idaho’s public schools. Approved by the Legislature, the laws narrowed collective bargaining for teachers, implemented a merit pay program and sought to put a laptop in the hands of all high school students. Now, Luna tells The Idaho Statesman he should have been more engaged in getting support from the general public — and making his ideas for change more transparent to those outside the capitol. Instead, Luna says he was focused at the time in winning support from lawmakers.
