Gov. Butch Otter says Idaho is on a continuing “journey to education excellence.” His Democratic opponent, A.J. Balukoff, called Idaho’s bottom-ranked per-pupil spending “downright shameful.” That’s the split that was underscored Thursday. In a guest opinion sent to Idaho newspapers, and posted on his state website, Otter hailed the work of his education reform task force. “The product of their work was a slate of 20 visionary recommendations that now serve as our path forward on improving education,” said Otter. “It is the first time in Idaho history that we have a school improvement plan supported by teachers, administrators, patrons, the business community, and leaders of both political parties”/Kevin Richert, IdahoED NEWS.
