Sen. Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum, told the Senate that SB 1108 is so important that it needed to be read in full, for all senators to understand everything the measure would do. “I'm really concerned with how mean-spirited this bill seems to be,” she said.
Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, questioned Sen. John Goedde about his suggestion that those teachers who have continuing contracts now will keep them. Goedde said they'll be “grandfathered,” but Keough pointed out that various clauses in the bill end specific features of current continuing contracts.
