Who are the four Republicans and public educators who want to succeed Tom Luna as Idaho’s superintendent of public instruction?
Over at Idaho Education News, we tried to answer that question with four in-depth profiles of the candidates on the May 20 GOP ballot.
We gleaned a lot of policy perspectives and personal tidbits. (Click on each candidate’s name to read much more.) To whet your appetite, here’s one important policy point and one interesting sidelight about each candidate:
- John Eynon: The Cottonwood music and drama teacher doesn’t belong to the Idaho Education Association — but if he’s elected, he’d like the teachers’ unions to lead the charge to replace the Idaho Core Standards. Eynon started as a teacher in southern California, but after voters passed the Proposition 13 property tax initiative, he left the schools for the career security of the U.S. Navy.
Never miss a local story.
