Eye On Boise

'School of hard knocks'

Here's a link to reporter Jared Hopkins' story over the weekend in the Times-News, on the education levels of Idaho's lawmakers. The story begins, "Ask a good portion of the Idaho Legislature about their alma mater, and they'll give you a stock answer that could resemble a school fight song. 'I went to the school of hard knocks,' said Sen. Shirley McKague, R-Meridian, one of Idaho's legislators without a college diploma. She isn't alone. Nearly 20 percent of Idaho lawmakers don't hold four-year college degrees."
