Idaho Public Television’s “Idaho Reports” program has a new episode up online looking at education issues as the legislative session approaches; you can watch it here. On the program, co-host Aaron Kunz interviews state schools Superintendent Tom Luna; there’s a segment on early childhood education including comments from Lauren Necochea of KidsCount, state Sen. Fred Martin, R-Boise, Treasure Valley YMCA CEO Jim Everett; and Rep. Hy Kloc, D-Boise, who is working on legislation to pilot a public preschool program in Idaho; and I join Jim Weatherby and Kevin Richert for a discussion of education issues facing the upcoming Legislature with Kunz and co-host Melissa Davlin. The program opens with a bit of an introduction to the two new co-hosts and where they're heading with the show.
