Ed Reform Group Ranks Idaho No. 15

The Center for Education Reform (CER), a Washington, D.C.-based organization dedicated to assisting states with education concerns geared toward choice in education and accountability, has released what it calls the “Parent Power Index,” ranking states on parents’ ability to choose a quality education for their children. CER uses several factors in rating each state, including charter schools, online learning, teacher quality, school choice, as well as whether or not the state’s governor is pro-reform, which Idaho Gov. Butch Otter is. The ratings are from 0-100 percent and Idaho ranks No. 15 with an index rating of 71 percent/Mitch Coffman, Idaho Reporter. More here. (Idaho Reporter photo)

Question: Do you think Idaho offers enough school choice?
