Kenck Rips Idaho GOP Ed Policies

In his latest post on The EDge, Kevin Richert writes of criticism by Idaho Democratic Party Chairman Larry Kenck, of Post Falls, for Republicans re: issue of education funding:

Kenck mocked Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna, who recently suggested that family size is a factor in Idaho’s next-to-last ranking in per-pupil school spending. Wrote Kenck: “Luna was elected to be the captain of our education system. Remember last year when the Costa Concordia cruise ship hit a reef and sunk off Tuscany’s coast? That captain abandoned ship while his passengers remained on board desperate for help. Sometimes you just get a bad captain.” Full post here.

Question: Will detrimental education policies and funding ever snag the Idaho Republican Party?
