It’s back to the drawing board for a series of controversial bills to limit Idaho teachers’ collective bargaining rights, reports Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News. “All the bills from the school boards are being redrafted,” Senate Education Committee Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d’Alene, told Richert this afternoon. The Idaho School Boards Association has introduced seven bills so far this session, with most of them reviving pieces of the voter-rejected Proposition 1, the piece of the “Students Come First” school reform laws that sought to roll back teachers’ collective bargaining rights.
