Otter touts business collaborations with colleges, CdA teacher of year…

Gov. Butch Otter is highlighting university-business collaborations in the state and  efforts at Idaho’s community colleges to address workforce development issues. He’s also paying tribute to Katie Pemberton of Canfield Middle School in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho’s 2013 teacher of the year.  “She’s earned that recognition in part by making technology a cornerstone of her math classes at Canfield,” Otter said. He also got a quick but loud round of applause when he acknowledged the Albertson Foundation for its support of education in Idaho, including a $5 million grant for innovative teacher training at the U of I and Northwest Nazarene University.
