In Their Own Words: Idaho Lawmakers Preview Legislative Session

News outlets around are reporting on how schools in my legislative district are hiring teachers that are either uncertified or have no teaching experience. This puts my constituents’ children at a disadvantage compared to urban students who have more resources and opportunities that will help them succeed. That’s why I will be introducing legislation in 2018 that provides student loan relief for teachers who work in rural districts. I co-sponsored this legislation in 2017, but it never hit the House floor. If Idaho is serious about enabling rural families to succeed, we must have quality schools with quality teachers. My bill, which is aimed at attracting and retaining qualified teachers for our kids, is a positive step in that direction. Investing in a good education is the foundation for prosperity.
