Despite fears to the contrary, Idaho's new collective-bargaining law is running smoothly, and should stay on the books, according to the Idaho School Boards Association.
Here's an excerpt of a guest opinion submitted today by the ISBA:
"School board members have, and always will, value their teachers. The changes in the education reform law affected by Proposition 1 have restored those local school board responsibilities back where they belong.
"Idaho school boards are better because of these education reform laws, and we can’t imagine going backwards. Help us do our job effectively."
The collective bargaining law, one of the three Students Come First education laws, will appear as Proposition 1 on the Nov. 6 ballot.
