The feds’ $10 million threat is a joke

The consequences of Idaho not testing 95 percent of its students is misunderstood and overblown to the point undo pressure is being directed at parents, school board members and educators.

Under the new standards, Idaho will no longer have direct control over education in our state, nor will the districts, the schools, the teachers or the parents.
