Senate passes pro-IEA resolution

The Senate has passed HCR 48, a resolution congratulating the Idaho Education Association on its 120th anniversary, without the loud chorus of “nay” votes that greeted the measure in the House. Senate Education Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene, told the Senate, “I don't think anyone suffered more rebuke than the Idaho Education Association last year, but I stand in support of this resolution.” Goedde was the lead sponsor of the “Students Come First” school reform bills, which the IEA opposed.

Goedde said, “I've had instances to sit down with the Idaho Education Association and the ISBA and the administrators, and go over legislation, and each group offers improvements to the original language, and I appreciate that. We may not always agree, and certainly I don't agree with the overarching concept, but this association is important to the education of Idaho.”
