This week, we discuss concerns with new reading scores that show why the Legislature devoted millions of dollars in new funding to improve literacy rates.

Plus, EdNews’ East Idaho reporter Devin Bodkin stops by to discuss his reporting on teacher retention and a educator “famine” affecting several school districts.

Finally, hosts Kevin Richert and Clark Corbin take a closer look at a new state report on teacher evaluations.

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