Idaho state schools Superintendent Tom Luna is headed around the state for classroom visits, tours and community speeches, from New Plymouth and Horseshoe Bend on Tuesday to Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene on Friday. In the four days, his schedule includes five elementary school visits, four secondary school stops, two school assemblies, two Rotary Club speeches, and a talk at a community breakfast in Gooding.
Luna this year pushed through controversial and far-reaching school reform legislation; it's up for a referendum vote in the 2012 election. Luna's office said in a statement that the tour is his usual practice; “Every school year, Superintendent Luna travels across the state to visit classrooms and hear directly from students, teachers, school administrators and parents.”
