Luna heads to D.C. to seek stimulus answers

Idaho state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna is heading to Washington, D.C. today to get first-hand answers about the federal stimulus package from Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and other White House officials. "This is an important trip because the governor, the Legislature and I all have so many unanswered questions about the stimulus package and how it will impact public education in Idaho. I intend to get answers," Luna said in a statement. He'll join several other state education officials at a White House meeting on Wednesday afternoon. When he returns, he'll talk directly with legislators, school district superintendents, local school board members, teachers, parents and "other educational stakeholders" about what he learns.
