Episode 75: Idaho’s summer of ESSA continues

There was plenty of talk about ESSA this week.

We’ll recap the fallout from legislators and education leaders who feel like they’ve been kept in the dark.

Stick around and learn what a court ruling over a Missouri church playground could mean for school choice in states such as Idaho. And get the latest on school contract negotiations in districts across the state.
