Senate R’s To Mull Ed Bills In Private

"She's supposed to go to kindergarten in the fall," said Olivia Rhodes' stepfather, Darren Thiesen, of Rathdrum, as Rhodes held her sign at the education rally in Coeur d'Alene on Monday. Hundreds gathered at Coeur d'Alene City Hall and marched to the Human Rights Education Institute to protest the school reform bill.

Senate Republicans plan to go into a closed-door caucus at 11 a.m. today (10 a.m. PST), according to Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill, R-Rexburg; there's no word at this point what will happen with the education reform bills, but there could be after the caucus.

Question: Why are Senate Republicans meeting in private to discuss Tom Luna's education "reform" proposals?
