Idaho state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna and state Rep. Brian Cronin, D-Boise, face off today at the City Club of Boise over the “Students Come First” school reform laws, which Luna wrote and of which Cronin is a leading opponent, along with serving as a consultant to the campaign against the laws. Idahoans will be asked in the November election whether they want to keep the laws or not; a yes vote on Propositions 1, 2 and 3 keeps the laws, a no vote repeals them. I'll be live-blogging the session today.
