‘Positive Step’ Forward for Education Reform in Idaho

Today, Chairman of the Senate Education Committee Senator John Goedde asked that Senate Bill 1110 and Senate Bill 1108, the pay-for-performance and labor relations portions of the Students Come First education reform package, be held on the Senate calendar until Thursday when they will be taken up by the full Senate.  Senate Bill 1113 will return to the Senate Education Committee for further improvements.

“This is another positive step toward reforming education in Idaho,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna said. “Two of the Students Come First bills will be taken up on the Senate floor tomorrow. If there are improvements that can be made to Senate Bill 1113, we are open to those ideas. This is how the legislative process works, and I look forward to working with the Senate to pass this reform package.”
