Committee Votes to Retain Common Core Math Standards 

Last Thursday, the House Education Committee voted in favor of retaining Common Core math standards. 
The Idaho Freedom Fighters are lobbying to remove Common Core educational standards in the state. Common Core refers to educational standards for public schools adopted by over forty states. The House Education Committee overwhelmingly voted against changing the math standards, 13-5. 

On Wednesday, The House Education Committee will vote this week wether or not to retain Common Core science standards. Out of the 25 people that showed up to testify, 15 were in support of keeping the standards, 10 opposed. The House Education Committee will be meeting again on Friday for further discussion. 

David Daley Expert on Gerrymandering

Idaho has done a great job over the years preventing the manipulation of district lines for political gain. 

All of this could change soon. There is a plan in the works to over turn Idaho's success and unfairly redraw the lines. Join national bestselling author, David Daley, for a discussion on gerrymandering in Idaho. The event is being held at the Egyptian Theatre on February 6th at 7 pm. Tickets can be purchased here.
