Kevin Richert Podcast, Episode 67: Breaking down an extraordinary week

There was … a lot of news this week.

A batch of school bond issues and levies — big-ticket elections in Coeur d’Alene, Vallivue and Middleton, and a small but important election in tiny Three Creek.

And then came the Legislature. In a one-day “extraordinary session,” lawmakers approved $650 million in tax cuts and a new $410 million in education spending.

Kevin Richert and Idaho EdNews reporter Sadie Dittenber get you caught up in this week’s podcast.

The Teachers’ Lounge: Episode 1

With grading, lesson planning, and extracurriculars on their plates, teachers often have a hard time creating a work-life balance.
In the first episode of our newest podcast, Carly Flandro talks with Heidi Luker, a high school English teacher, about the power of saying “no” and shaking off that teacher guilt.
