Bringing Luna’s Monster Back To Life

Last week, Idaho's House and Senate Education committees began collecting the dead scraps of flesh leftover from the repudiated Luna laws. Discarded by the voters in a massive tidal wave of revulsion, these bits and pieces were lovingly sewn together. Then the lawmakers wrapped the corpse in a gauze of bad faith, attached it to the current of their own political hubris and threw the switch. Instantaneously, this new Frankenstein's monster stirred. Who cares if 57 percent of Idaho voters said no? These lawmakers knew better. So they acquiesced to the Idaho School Boards Association and restored life to a new assault on the employment rights of Idaho's beleaguered teachers/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you know where your district legislator's stand on the attempt to bring Tom Luna's education “reform” monster back to life?
