Propositions 1, 2 and 3 — the Students Come First education laws — undermine school boards' control and will funnel money into the coffers of "unaccountable" for-profit online education vendors, says Jerry Evans, a Republican who spent 16 years as Idaho's superintendent of public instruction.
Evans was state superintendent from 1979 to 1995.
Here's an excerpt of Evans' guest opinion:
"These 'reforms' hold little promise of helping students attain higher academic performance, which ought to be the goal of any school improvement program. They are nothing more than efforts to reduce local control and divert the public’s attention away from a severely underfunded public school system with the notion that with less money and more technology we can have better outcomes."
