Idaho Voters OK $209M In Levies

$208,877,000. That’s the bottom line from a busy election night across the state. All told, voters approved just shy of $209 million in school levies and bond issues, according to an Idaho Education News analysis of election results. By and large, school districts fared well as they took their cases to the polls. Voters approved 41 of 48 ballot measures statewide/Kevin Richert, IdahoED NEWS. More here.

Question: Seems school patrons value public education more than the Idaho Legislature. Am I being too harsh in my judgment?
