Episode 118: An open (and closed) discussion of K-12 funding

The state is on a fact-finding mission about school funding.
And some of the work is happening behind closed doors.
On this week’s edition of “Extra Credit,” Clark Corbin and Kevin Richert peels back the curtain on the Legislature’s school funding formula committee. They talk about the committee’s open hearings — and the consultants’ private meetings with education leaders, meetings even closed to the legislators themselves.
Also on the podcast: a recap of retiring Boise State University President Bob Kustra’s farewell speech of sorts.
Listen here.
