The four GOP candidates for Idaho state schools chief split over the new student testing program that the state is currently developing, with just one of the four – Melba school Superintendent Andy Grover - backing the state’s current approach. The four faced off as part of the “Idaho Debates,” sponsored by the Idaho Press Club and the League of Women Voters and broadcast statewide on Idaho Public Television. The one who wins the GOP primary on May 20 will face Democrat Jana Jones in November; she’s unopposed in the primary. You can read my full story here at spokesman.com.
