Last week the Idaho legislature scheduled three days of hearings to get feedback from the public about Superintendent Tom Luna's surprising proposal to completely overhaul Idaho's education system. Senator John Goedde (pictured in Betsy Russell photo) is a Republican from Coeur d'Alene and chairman of the senate education committee before which the hearings were held. Goedde stacked the deck. He manipulated the process from the beginning of the debate. Despite the fact that overhaul opponents overwhelmed the proponents at the hearing, Chairman Goedde granted equal time to each group, as if there were an equal number of contentions. And when one speaker, who identified himself as a proponent, failed to speak in favor, Goedde blew a gasket. Sisyphus, 43rd State Blues. More here.
Question: Are you happy with the way Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene, handled the Senate Education Committee debate re: Tom Luna's proposed education “reforms” this week?
