Denney on Students Come First change: ‘We may try to improve it’

Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill spoke proudly to the Idaho Press Club of the bill that passed the Senate unanimously to erase the requirement from the "Students Come First" law that teacher salary funds be cut each year to pay for reforms including merit-pay bonuses and technology boosts; under the bill, the reforms still would have to be funded, but not necessarily by cutting salary funds. House Speaker Lawerence Denney, asked if the House will consider the bill - which is now sitting in the House Education Committee, said, "Yes, I think it will be heard. And just like the tax bill, we may try to improve it."
