One of the bills reviving selected provisions of voter-rejected Proposition 1 regarding rolling back teachers’ collective bargaining rights was defeated in the Senate today on a 14-19 vote, reports Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News. SB 1148 was the bill to let school districts raise or decrease teacher salaries or add or eliminate contract days from one year to the next, eliminating a law that prevents such year-to-year decreases. The Idaho Education Association opposed the bill/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
Question: Score one for the good guys, right?
