Otter Begs IACI To Help Save Reform

Dredging my notebook from Monday's meeting of the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry I find this: Gov. Butch Otter asked the state's biggest business lobby to sustain the victory won by Otter and Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna in passing what Luna calls "Students Come First." The three measures passed by the Legislature in 2001 are subject to voter approval or rejection in November, after petitioners gathered over 200,000 signatures on three referendum petitions. "There are a lot of things that we have accomplished and those things can not be pushed aside," Otter told the group in Sun Valley. "Idaho became one of the first states to reform its education"/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Do you still think Otter didn't have a hand in helping Tom Luna foist his public education experiment on Idaho?
