Online Classes Ditched

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Following the will of Idaho voters, the State Board of Education voted 7-1 to ditch a requirement that Idaho high school students take two online classes to graduate. But Monday’s decision clearly won’t be the last time the issue is considered. Nearly all of the board members said some Internet-learning mandate was necessary to prepare public school students for the work force. On Nov. 6, voters rejected all three laws that encompassed public schools chief Tom Luna’s education overhaul. Most unpopular was Proposition 3, which included a $180 million contract for laptops — and the law directing the State Board of Education to establish an online requirement. Board members said their repeal of the two-credit requirement resets discussions with groups including the Idaho Education Association teachers union about what’s appropriate.
