(BOISE) – Idaho Gov. Butch Otter is asking the state Board of Education to spearhead a discussion about improving schools following the rejection of Tom Luna’s Students Come First laws.
He says a group made up of a broad selection of Idahoans will study options to make improvements without new legislation. Both Otter and Luna say they look forward to working with the group.
Otter noted that in spite of sometimes vehement disagreements among residents, he hopes the group will work in a bipartisan way to improve education in Idaho.
