The Idaho Education Association launched a new website last month called Great Idaho Public Schools, which is designed as a “clearinghouse for ideas and information about supporting Idaho public schools.”
“You’re not alone,” the site tells parents. “If you believe a strong educational foundation is critical for a child’s success, you’ve come to the right place.”
The site includes testimonials from Idaho teachers, select statistics (Idaho is 39th in average public school teacher pay, and 46th for student-to-teacher ratio, for example), and a place for parents to sign up to “stay connected” with one another and the IEA.
IEA is also asking parents to fill out a survey to “help guide us in our common goal to create the schools our children need and deserve.”
