Why This Matters
Idahoans need accurate news and data because:
A worldwide pandemic disrupted public education in 2020. School buildings closed. Achievements tests were canceled and graduation requirements waived. Teaching and learning moved online.
Families struggled to educate their kids at home while trying to work. Teachers struggled as they tried to communicate with their students over email or texting.
Idaho education is just starting to wake up from its COVID-19 coma, and parents are searching for options. The information in this book will help families, taxpayers and educators make data-based decisions toward improving public education for all kids.
