What Idaho schools want

A teacher career ladder program costing $253.8 million over six years.

Restoring school operational funding to pre-recession levels — at a five-year cost of $82.5 million.

A shift to funding Idaho public schools based on enrollment — at a potential cost of $60 million.

Another attempt to equip students and teachers with personalized computing devices.

A push for the “rigorous and successful implementation” of Idaho Core Standards, the state’s version of Common Core.

These are among the most costly, or controversial, ideas coming from Gov. Butch Otter’s education reform task force. Full story. Kevin Richert, IEN
