Eye On Boise

That was quick

The Senate Education Committee voted unanimously to introduce the “WeTeach” teacher merit pay bill, without any discussion at all – and without even having the bill’s sponsors say anything about it. With the vote already over, Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d’Alene, told Idaho Education Association lobbyist Jim Shackelford, who was in the audience, “Thank you Mr. Shackelford. … I’m sorry we missed the PowerPoint.” Responded Shackelford with a smile, “It’s your loss. … We just won’t do it.”
