More debate against SB 1108: ‘Punishing teachers … the public knows it’

Sen. Elliot Werk, D-Boise, told the Senate that under SB 1108, "Our predecessors put this in place because there were problems, and those problems were many, and those problems have not disappeared."

Sen. Diane Bilyeu, D-Pocatello, said, "SB 1108, in my opinion, is the beginning of dismantling our public schools in Idaho by punishing teachers, and that's really what it does. And the public knows it."

So far, more than two hours in, no one has debated in favor of the bill except its sponsor, Sen. John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene, in his opening debate.
