Lawmakers Preventing Ed Reform Delays


(BOISE) – In an effort to curb delays to education reform, Republican lawmakers are working to advance emergency clauses on all three of state superintendent Tom Luna’s education reform bills. The clauses would make the laws go into effect immediately, rather than July 1. The emergency amendments come after Idaho’s teacher’s union began steps to launch a referendum against the bills, which would have delayed implementing education reform until Nov. 2012. The Idaho Education Association is required to have an additional 50,000 signatures within 60 days of the closing legislative session to launch the repeal.
