Episode 45: The GOP’s Big Win

Welcome to episode 45 of the Extra Credit podcast.

This week, we take a look at how the election affects education, from the White House to the Statehouse. President-elect Donald Trump stormed through Idaho, carrying 42 of the state’s 44 counties, while the GOP expanded its supermajority in the Idaho Legislature.

Plus, catch up on why frustrated teachers and parents say their voices weren’t sought out as Idaho education leaders draft the state’s plan to comply with a major new federal education law.

Be sure to join us for a special live edition of the Extra Credit podcast at abbot 10:30 a.m. Nov. 18 on Facebook Live. Boise State University assistant professor of politics and government Jaclyn Kettler will join us as dig deeper into the election results and take questions from out listeners live over social media.
