The new group that consolidates Tea Party branches across Idaho, urges "yes" votes on the three 2011 education laws authored by Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna.
"FACTS and LOVE of Idaho's kids caused us to endorse Yes Yes Yes to keep Education Modernization Laws!" says the group in an email announcing a special edition newsletter.
The newsletter reprints content provided by the Idaho Freedom Foundation, including an editorial by Executive Director Wayne Hoffman.
Also included is a dissent from Bob Compton, a veterinarian, who questions the laptop mandate and says "Luna is encouraging implementation of a federal/UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization) program for our students that will move Idaho's education system even further away from local control."
Compton says investing in teachers, not laptops, makes more sense, citing Finland's high-scoring students. "...Finland's educational success is training up 'great' teachers who attain at least a Master's degree becuase they are eligible for employment," he writes.
The newsletter wasn't yet loaded on the Gem State Tea Party website Tuesday morning, but a PDF is available here.
