A second round of bills, modeled after the defeated Proposition 1, amount to another round of “teacher attacks,” according to the Idaho Education Association. On Tuesday, the House Education Committee printed three bills containing elements of Proposition 1, the collective bargaining law rejected by voters on Nov. 6. This came one day after the Senate Education Committee introduced four collective bargaining bills. The next step: stakeholder meetings. Representatives of several education groups — including the IEA and the Idaho School Boards Association, which is sponsoring the bills — are slated to meet this afternoon with Senate Education Committee Chairman John Goedde and House Education Committee Chairman Reed DeMordaunt, according to an IEA news release. The IEA opposes the seven bills/Kevin Richert, The EDge. More here.
Question: Have you called Senate Education Committee Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene, to remind him that Idaho overwhelmingly rejected these bills in concept in November?
