Idaho Democratic Party
A nod to teachers? “Pre-kindergarten” or “early childhood” education? “Climate change” or “climate disruption?” Idaho Democrats wrestled with wording — then unanimously adopted a party platform.
Democrats met last weekend in Twin Falls. Still no public word, yet, on announced candidates for governor, state superintendent of public instruction, or other statewide races.
The key difference between the governor’s fantasy world and the real world the rest of us inhabit: Magic.
The governor will need powerful magic if he is to convince us that his recent embrace of education is a genuine priority.
A boatload of criticism? In a guest opinion, the chairman of the state’s Democratic Party takes on Gov. Butch Otter, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna and House Speaker Scott Bedke.
