Albertson’s Meets Ed Needs — Again

Has there ever been a private institution that has done as much good for Idaho education as the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation? The foundation announced Wednesday that it’s donating $21 million to the Idaho Department of Education to help create “the 21st century classroom” in every Idaho school. With its grant, the trust will help equip teachers across the state with state-of-the-art tools to raise student achievement through data-driven decision making. The software is designed and distributed by SchoolNet Inc., a New York company. The SchoolNet tool will improve the way schools monitor student progress and teacher effectiveness/Twin Falls Times-News Editorial Board. More here.

Question: Do you agree with the Twin Falls Times-News that the Albertson Foundation has been very, very good for public education in Idaho?
