NYTimes Letters Slam Luna Reform

This week's story, "Teachers Resist High-Tech Push in Idaho Schools," featured a Post Falls dateline and quoted three teachers: Ann Rosenbaum of Post Falls High School, Doug StanWeins of Boise High and Stefani Cook at Rigby High. Idaho Senate Finance Committee Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, also weighed in, telling the Times the legislature was “dazzled” by lobbyists for high-tech companies who gave to Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna's 2010 re-election campaign. "It’s almost as if it was written by the top technology providers in the nation," Cameron told the Times. "And you’d think students would be excited about getting a mobile device, but they’re saying: not at the expense of teachers." In letters to the Times published Thursday, three readers echo those sentiments and critique the role of technology/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here. (Betsy Russell SR file photo: Tom Luna)
