This week, Idaho Education Association executive director Paul Stark and president Layne McInelly join Kevin Richert to talk about crisis and opportunity.
They’ll talk about the restart of the 2021-22 school year, amid the latest wave of the coronavirus pandemic, and the political blowback over allegations of indoctrination in schools. But they’ll also talk about the state’s $1.4 billion budget surplus, and what the money could mean for education.
