Luna: ‘They began to orchestrate against me’

State schools Supt. Tom Luna was asked about a deteriorating relationship between teachers and himself. “This divide is not between teachers and me,” he said. “It is between union leaders. … They spent $185,000 to unseat me, this is the union leaders. They have never dealt with me in good faith. From the day I was elected in 2006 they began to orchestrate and organize against me … (and) feed teachers misinformation.” Said Luna, “There is not a level of distrust between teachers and myself - it's the teachers union that has fostered this.”

Rep. Brian Cronin responded, “Folks, the teachers union is made up of teachers.” He said two-thirds of Idaho teachers belong to the teachers union. “They feel disrespected, they feel ignored.”
