Student Walkout Protests Luna Plan

About 100 Boise High School students (pictured) are now gathered in the second-floor rotunda of the state capitol, where they're quietly doing their homework. It's part of walkouts at high schools across the state this morning in protest of the proposed school reform plan; the Associated Press reports that about 100 students walked out of classes at Meridian High School and more than 150 walked out at Nampa High. Students were also reported to have walked out of classes at other high schools in Boise, Caldwell and Pocatello/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here. (SR photo/Betsy Russell)

  • DFO: The 3 local school districts told Alison Boggs that they haven't heard of a walkout involving Kootenai County high school students.

Question: What impact will the student walkout have on legislative approval of Superintendent Tom Luna's education "reform"?
