Luna Warns Teachers Of Retaliation

Teachers are being warned they could lose their certification if they participate in efforts to recall Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna, repeal his new education reforms or engage in other political activities on school grounds. In a memo Friday, Luna said his office had received numerous inquiries and reports of teachers using their school email to coordinate political activities: proselytizing to students in the classroom and using pupils as couriers for political materials/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Is Luna's attempt to intimidate teachers a sign that the recall and referendum efforts are getting under his skin?
