Ed Board told to be active in K-12

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter wants the state Board of Education to take a “more active role” in K-12 education, Idaho Education News reports, while in the past he had asked the board to focus on higher education. Otter articulated the new direction in a letter to the board over the summer, EdNews reports, in which he cited the 20 recommendations of his education task force, and said, “It may be necessary for the board to assume management of various task force initiatives,” and said he’d push for more funding and staff for the board if needed/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
