A month ago, Sen. Dean Cameron was one of the loudest critics of a controversial multiyear contract to install WiFi in Idaho high schools and junior high schools. Upon learning that the contract could run five years — with options that could extend the deal to 15 years — the powerful co-chairman of the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee was pointed in his remarks. For Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna to use a one-year, $2.25 million budget line item to support a multiyear deal was “certainly a stretch, and perhaps borderline on a lack of honesty,” Cameron told the Spokane Spokesman-Review’s Betsy Russell. But now, as more details emerge about the state’s contract with Education Networks of America, Cameron is keeping his own counsel/Kevin Richert, IdahoED News. More here.
Question: Why do you suppose Cameron is taking a different approach now to wi-fi controversy?
