This is the year for Idaho’s elected officials to to use the state’s budget surplus to end confiscatory taxes and free the state from Washington, D.C.’s bureaucracy.
It’s time to ignore the rhetoric of the education establishment. It’s time to free students from the failure that is the government school system.
The power is in the hands of lawmakers, not the university presidents.
Students haven’t been able to utilize campus facilities so, if anything, college operations in the era of coronavirus should cost less not more.
It’s time to get creative when it comes to the future of schooling.
Lawmakers cautioned the schools to stop pushing political agendas and focus on improving mediocre graduation rates. But some campus employees seemingly have not gotten the message.
Finally, some good news for Idaho public school kids and their parents.
Let’s hope senators and the governor clamp down on bond reruns and protect taxpayers from aggressive taxing districts that don’t respect the will of voters.
For the first time in many years, a governor’s budget forces Idaho’s four-year schools to evaluate their priorities.
People need to feel free to openly question whether the government-run education monopoly is the best we can do.
