For your Monday viewing pleasure, here are three video links worth a watch:
Budget breakdown: Clark Corbin of Idaho Education News joins this week’s “Idaho Reports” pundits panel to talk about the K-12 budget — and the latest on the WiFi and broadband funding controversies.
Common Core: Also from this week’s “Idaho Reports,” a closer look at the Idaho Core Standards. The Idaho Statesman’s Bill Roberts discusses the rollout of the standards, six months in. The “Idaho Reports” crew heads into a Boise classroom for a firsthand look at the standards. And Penni Cyr of the Idaho Education Association and Lisa Kinnaman of the Idaho Leads project discuss the new standards from an administrative viewpoint. (Disclosure: Idaho Education News is housed under the Idaho Leads Project at Boise State University; Idaho Education News and the Idaho Leads Project are funded through grants from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation.)
Levy Tuesday: As school districts across the state head to the polls Tuesday to seek supplemental property taxes levies, I sit down with Idaho On Your Side’s Michelle Edmonds to discuss the stakes for Idaho’s largest school district.
