A watchdog group is taking the Boise School District to court for paying a share of an employee’s salary while heading the local teachers’ union.
In the complaint, filed Monday in District Court in Ada County, the Idaho Freedom Foundation says the district is paying at least $35,932 this year to the president of the Boise Education Association.
The Boise district did not comment directly on the lawsuit Thursday. But in a statement, the district said it has “benefited from a longstanding collaborative relationship with the Boise Education Association.”
