Hundreds of Idaho charter school students crowded the Capitol on Wednesday to rally in support of school choice, reports Clark Corbin of Idaho Education News. He reports that students and charter school supporters stood 15 deep at the base of the Statehouse steps to chant and listen to speeches from Gov. Butch Otter and state schools Superintendent Tom Luna. The students, along with some of their parents and teachers, were participating in a "Capitol Day" event sponsored by the Coalition of Idaho Charter School Families.
