Ed task force won’t make recommendations to 2013 Legislature, leaves $34M in limbo…

The governor’s education stakeholders task force, which is meeting all day today, has announced that it won’t make recommendations to the 2013 Legislature, leaving $34 million that both the governor and state Superintendent Tom Luna earmarked in their budget recommendations in limbo, Idaho Education News reports. Otter told the Idaho Press Club this morning, “Outside the task force, we have a lot of recommendations for what to do with the $34 million.” Idaho EdNews reports that both Senate Education Chairman John Goedde and House Education Chairman Reed DeMordaunt are calling for the money to stay in the  public school budget, not be diverted elsewhere; you can read Swindell’s full report here.
