Tom Luna Defends Policies During Moscow Visit
Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna finished his post- legislative tour in Moscow on Tuesday, speaking with educators and administrators about the education reform laws approved by the state legislature.
Luna said his plan will fund a one-to-one ratio of students to laptops in Idaho classrooms, not replace teachers with technology. “Laptops are not replacing teachers, no more than when they invented the printing press and we started putting books in schools that books replaced teachers.”
Luna spent the last week touring Idaho’s six educational districts, discussing his ‘Students Come First’ reform laws. In Moscow, he said he believes it is an exciting time to be a teacher in Idaho.
