Episode 84: an interview with Beth Oppenheimer

As executive director of Idaho’s Association for the Education of Young Children, Beth Oppenheimer is a Statehouse fixture — and a high-profile advocate for pre-K.

This week on the podcast, Kevin Richert talks to Oppenheimer about the state of the Idaho pre-K debate — and the latest on her group’s efforts to gauge public support for early education.

We also talk to Oppenheimer about her “other” education job. She is one year into her term as a Boise school trustee.

Listen here.
