The State Charter Commissioners and Staff want to decrease our access to Charter and Virtual schools.
You’ve seen the news (if not, click here). The Idaho State Commission that oversees 2/3 of Charter Schools was caught on tape plotting to skirt the law and decrease our access to charters- all of this while locking out the public in a secret meeting the Governor says was "probably illegal". We can’t let this happen. So, we need your help.
There are 3 EASY actions you can take RIGHT NOW to help us, help all of you: CALL. WRITE. SHOW UP.
Will you spend 2 minutes on your cell phone? As a parent and supporter of school choice, we need you to call the Governor and tell him to protect your access to Charter and Virtual schools! He's right the meeting was illegal, but it's the CONTENT of the meeting that's disturbing. The schools are afraid to speak up, so it's up to us to stand up for students, teachers, administrators, and school boards. Here’s the Governor's phone number: 208-334-2100
