Butch Otter reiterated his support for the Idaho Core Standards today, saying, “There was a very healthy vote in favor of the standards when the Legislature addressed the issue.” He said, “I believe it was the right thing to do.” Idaho needs to be able to compare its students progress “so that we can compete in the economy and the real world,” he said. “The answer is I’m supporting it.”
