A Voice Of Reason

Brian Cronin D-Boise, speaks out against SB 1108, noting that some have described it as "medicine" the school system needs. "One person's medicine is another person's Kool-Aid, and I refuse to drink it," Cronin declared. The teacher contract bill passed the House after a debate that stretched for more than three hours. Cronin spoke eloquently against the pell-mell push by House Education Chairman and other GOP legislators to overhaul the public education system. (SR photo: Betsy Russell)
