Bill Offers $1.4M For Charter Facilities

Members of the House Education Committee voted unanimously Thursday to introduce a groundbreaking — and potentially controversial — charter school funding bill. The bill would provide $1.4 million to offset charter schools facility costs. Because Thursday’s hearing was only an introductory print hearing, legislators did not allow testimony from education stakeholders or the public. Now that the legislation has been introduced, a full public hearing one the charter school proposal will likely occur in the coming days or weeks/Kevin Richert, IdahoED News. More here.

Question: Should Idaho provide $1.4M for charter school facility costs?
