Episode 177: The Future of School Funding in Idaho

Welcome to episode 177 of the Extra Credit podcast.

This week, Reclaim Idaho announced it is working on a new ballot initiative designed to increase school funding by raising income tax rates. We’ll explain how the proposal would work, and the hurdles the group must clear before placing the proposal on Idaho voters’ ballots in 2020.

Plus, we’ll take a first look at State Supt. Sherri Ybarra’s 2020-21 budget request.

Be sure to check back next week for another new episode of Extra Credit.
