Is state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna softening in his opposition to pre-kindergarten programs?
In a story in Monday’s Idaho Statesman, Luna suggests he is changing his views. Luna, like some Republican legislators, has questioned whether the state can afford to pay for pre-K. Legislative critics also have suggested that young children are better taught at home.
Here’s what Luna told the Statesman’s Bill Roberts recently: “It is obvious to me there are some homes where that is just not going to happen. … We have to find a solution.”
