Repub Ybarra Denies Confab Snub

Sherri Ybarra spent Thursday in training sessions with Idaho school superintendents — and took issue with the suggestion that she had snubbed school administrators earlier in the week. The Republican state superintendent’s candidate was criticized by Democratic opponent Jana Jones — and by one prominent district superintendent with Republican credentials — after she declined an invitation to speak at the Idaho Association of School Administrators’ annual meeting in Boise. The decision came down to scheduling conflicts, Ybarra said at a news conference Thursday. “Snubbing was not a term I used,” said Ybarra, in reference to an Idaho Education News headline on the flap. Ybarra said she had a doctor’s appointment on Monday, the day Jones spent a half hour fielding questions from an audience of 460 school administrators/Kevin Richert, IdahoED NEWS. More here.
