Episode 49: After the ’22 session, how will K-12 spend its new money?

The 2022 Legislature put an additional $104 million into teacher pay.

And more than $180 million of new money into K-12 benefits.

And an additional $46.6 million into literacy.

Now, it’s up to school leaders to spend the money.

To look at the implementation process, Kevin Richert interviews lobbyists from three of the state’s education stakeholder groups: Matt Compton of the Idaho Education Association, Andy Grover of the Idaho Association of School Administrators and Quinn Perry of the Idaho School Boards Association.
