We’ve got it all.

Idaho Education News is hosting a crash course on how the May 17 election could affect Idaho public education.

Idaho Education News, the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce and the Idaho School Boards Association are partnering for Donuts and Democracy, a panel discussion featuring experts in education and politics.

The free event is 9 a.m. Friday, at the Yanke Family Research Park, 220 Parkcenter Blvd.

The panel features Idaho Education News journalists Kevin Richert and Clark Corbin and Jess Harrison, the communications and government affairs director with the ISBA.

Our event begins with coffee, donuts and an overview of the education and political landscape in Idaho. The panelists will then drill down into key races and other education-related issues on the ballot, including levies and trustee recalls.
