Teacher Fires Back At Luna

An English teacher in Canyon County is firing back at Idaho school superintendent tom Luna over a controversial memo.  Luna sent a memo to school administrators last week that warned of possible teacher ethics violations for school-based efforts to recall Luna and his education overhaul laws. According to the Idaho statesman,Vallivue Teacher Travis Manning fired off a letter of his own. In the letter to the department of education, manning quotes an Idaho code that says local school boards can determine what schools can be used for. Luna quotes Idaho’s ethics code for teachers that states teachers can’t use “institutional privileges” for political purposes. Violations of the code can result in loss of teacher certification. Manning also writes that Luna’s visits to schools to discuss his education overhaul is political “stumping” and therefore violates the same ethics code. He writes that Luna and the state violated the ethics code by “intentionally underestimating” the state education budget by millions of dollars. Luna’s office responds that the State superintendent has not violated any laws or code of ethics.
