Welcome to Education Idaho, the State Department of Education’s new blog that focuses on keeping
’s educators, parents and patrons informed about what’s happening in public education across the state and nation. Idaho
Since I took office as State Superintendent in 2007, my staff and I have strived to create a more customer-driven education system that meets the needs of the customers of education – parents and students – by first and foremost providing them with the highest level of customer service and technical assistance. We have already made strides to reach out to more people through an electronic newsletter, an updated web site and social media outlets, such as Facebook and Twitter. Education Idaho is one more step in that direction.
From the public schools budget to classroom success stories, Education Idaho will feature a variety of stories and the opportunity for you to ask questions and share your ideas. We hope you will find Education Idaho helpful and informative.
