I keep telling myself I shouldnâ€™t care. In a sense I donâ€™t have a dog in this fight. My children are raised. My grandchildren attend schools in Utah and Washington,
but I pay taxes in Idaho. And I care what happens to our home in the future.
So, too, do Governor C.L. â€śButchâ€ť Otter, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna and all the members of the Idaho Legislature.
Included among those who care are the teachers and administrators in our public schools and the parents of the children in their charge.
But thereâ€™s a disconnect somewhere.

Senate Bill 1184 erodes meaningful parental Involvement and local control.
PTA is the largest child advocacy group in the nation and represents thousands of members which include parents, grandparents, teachers, school board members, community advocates and Idaho students.
The future success of Idaho students depends on their receiving a â€śthorough educationâ€ť that prepares them to contribute as adult citizens of Idaho and the United States.
