Join a public education conversation tonight

KBSX News is talking about the future of Idaho’s education system and you’re invited to join the conversation. Join reporters and stakeholders for an informal community discussion at Salt Tears Coffeehouse & Noshery on Tuesday, Jan. 15, in Boise.
Last November, Idaho voters struck down a trio of education laws. Those Students Come First laws would have put technology in classrooms, paid teachers based on performance and limited collective bargaining rights for teachers.
Now there’s discussion among state legislators that versions of these laws could come back in the 2013 legislative session. So what would you like to see happen with Idaho’s education?
Salt Tears will provide snacks, so come early and bring your friends. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The discussion begins at 6 p.m. It’s free and open to everyone of you can follow the meeting on Twitter @idahoednews with the hashtag #IDedu.
