The year 2022 in Idaho brought with it long campaigns and high-profile races in the May primaries and November election. As a result, three of Idaho’s statewide offices have new leaders this week, including the office I now hold, superintendent of public instruction. With the rallies, speeches and debates of campaign season behind us, today…
I believe that we are responsible for developing adults who can manage their personal and financial decisions.
Our kids need to be taught how taxes, health insurance, credit scores, interest, and loans work, among other important financial skills.
As your State Superintendent of Public Instruction, I will bridge the gap between the dinner table and the classroom.
One of the biggest challenges and opportunities school districts will face in the coming years is meeting parent expectations.
For me, the answer to that question is no. This answer led me to run for office.
Our institutions are investments that have proven their worth to our state and to generations of Idahoans throughout our history, even before statehood. The numbers bear that out and the investments must continue.
Idaho’s public education system is far better positioned coming out of the pandemic from a technology standpoint than we were a year ago.
The State Board, in partnership with Idaho AEYC, received a $6 million per year, three-year federal grant to help improve Idaho’s early childhood system “with an eye toward readiness and literacy.”
I want to assure you both Board, and Department staff are working hard to move the MEP process forward.
