Now more than ever it is critical that students graduate prepared to thrive in the REAL world where they will live and work as adults.
It hasn’t always been easy, and at times the road was difficult, but the effort was worth it and now the path forward is clear, says Idaho’s out-going State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
This is an exciting time for education. Today teachers and students have more opportunities than they ever have had in the past.
We have to end this cycle where students perform well in K-12, receive a high school diploma, and then just three months later too many of these same students realize they are woefully unprepared for the real world.
State Superintendent Tom Luna and his staff attempt to clear up concerns voiced by Sen. Steven Thayn and Madison School District Superintendent Geoffrey Thomas about the roll out of Idaho Core Standards.
Transitioning to these higher standards will be hard work in the initial years, but we all recognize it is the best thing for Idaho’s students and the future of our great state.
