The Task Force for Improving Education, which was created in December 2012 to explore and develop ideas to improve K-12 education in Idaho, finalized its recommendations today.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna said the following after the Task Force meeting adjourned:
“I am pleased with what the Task Force accomplished today. Through these recommendations, we can move our good education system to a great education system, a system in which we prepare every child to graduate from high school and go on to postsecondary education or the workforce without the need for remediation once they get there. Many of the items recommended today are ideas we have discussed and debated for several years. Now, we have the solid framework in place and the support of all stakeholders involved in education to make these ideas possible. As State Superintendent, I will do everything in my authority to ensure we have the resources, policies and programs necessary so the work of this Task Force becomes a reality.”
