Opening up the video vault …


Two video clips from last week, as I sit down to talk to Michelle Edmonds of KIVI and KNIN to catch up on a couple of topics.

First, we break down the ongoing war of words in the West Ada School District — with an eye to Tuesday’s supplemental levy:

Then we talk about the State Board of Education’s $9.8 million proposal to offer all-day kindergarten for at-risk students.

KIVI’s redesigned website has all of our segments under one roof — so you might want to check out and bookmark this page.

Also, I sat in on last week’s pundits’ panel on Idaho Public Television’s “Idaho Reports,” joining hosts Aaron Kunz and Melissa Davlin and fellow pundits Betsy Russell of the Spokane Spokesman-Review and Boise State University professor emeritus Jim Weatherby. Click here for a discussion of school levies, and how Idaho districts got to this point.
