Ybarra noncommittal on special session

State schools Superintendent Sherri Ybarra was asked by Idaho Education News if she’s advocating for a special session of the Legislature to address Idaho’s child support enforcement crisis; her response was non-committal. Here’s her statement:

“There are many capable individuals in the Idaho Legislature, in the attorney general’s office as well as other agencies that are currently working to find a solution on this issue. It is my role as the superintendent of public instruction to be an advocate for children, teachers, administrators and others that are directly meeting the needs of all students entering their schools, regardless of the situations that they may be facing.”
