Idaho won’t pay for Jeb Bush, Bob Wise presentation to ed technology task force

Idaho won't be paying anything to bring former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise to Boise next Tuesday to address state schools Supt. Tom Luna's “Students Come First” technology task force, according to Luna's office. “They're just coming on their own - they're paying for their own way, we're not paying for them,” said Melissa McGrath, Luna's spokeswoman. “We just invited them and asked if they would be interested to come and present at our technology task force. They had kind of kept track of the legislation as it moved through the session … and were interested. … We asked them if there would be speaking fees involved, and they said no. … They're paying their travel and their hotel. … We are very excited to have them come.”

The two head the Digital Learning Council, a group they launched in 2010 to promote “high quality digital learning.”
