Quotable Quote

The Meridian School District will consider modifying a plan to have kindergarten on alternating days to save busing costs.  About 300 people attended a public hearing on the district’s proposed budget Tuesday. 

Briana LeClaire, education policy analyst at the Idaho Freedom Foundation stated during public comments that Idaho schools have a chance to “rethink the way we do schools.” She supported using technology in the classroom, such as letting children use computers in the morning and work with teachers “to do the fun stuff in the afternoon.”  Read more on the meeting and other quotes here.
