From Common Core opposition to ‘non-denominational Christian Bibles,’ GOP confab takes up ed issues

Idaho Education News reporter Clark Corbin has a report here on education issues that came up today at the state’s Republican Party convention, from a resolution against Common Core standards for student achievement that was strongly opposed by GOP state schools Superintendent Tom Luna, to one that backers said would require “non-denominational Christian Bibles,” be placed in all classrooms for student use. Both won the support of the party’s resolutions committee and will go to the full convention for a vote tomorrow.
