Today is the Idaho Coalition of Home Educators’ annual “Pie Day” at the state Capitol, when fresh-scrubbed home-school students set up displays around the 4th floor rotunda highlighting their schoolwork and projects, and volunteers hand out slices of 150 home-baked pies. Before the House adjourned this morning, Majority Leader Mike Moyle announced, “I’d remind the body that today the home-school kids are here with the pies, and you need to go upstairs and get some. I’d suggest you go at least three times, because they’ve got a lot of pies.”
