Cheers to the Idaho Virtual Academy: They had their first graduation this Saturday. And somewhere an IEA board member cried. Hard. Well done IDVA, great work bringing innovation to public schools.
Cheers to the Obama Administration: For its plan to incentivize states adopting charter schools and lifting restrictions. If you’re going to have the federal government in education (which you shouldn’t.) then it should be supporting something responsible. The Obama Administration’s plan is more carrot and less stick. Wonder how our friends on the left feel about this.
Boos to Supporters of a big new tax to fund a library in Canyon County. I love libraries as much as the next guy, but there’s a recession going on and people are truly taxed enough.
