Idaho Charter School Bill gets Changes

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Nonprofit corporations would no longer be able to start charter schools, according to changes senators made to a bill that’s part of a package of reforms working its way through the Legislature. Under Wednesday’s changes, Idaho universities would still be eligible to open charter schools.

Coeur d’Alene Republican Sen. John Goedde proposed the amendment which would remove the ability of nonprofit organizations to open these alternative public schools. The bill is intended to give more school choice to Idaho families, but opponents have argued the bill as it was originally written — it has already passed the House — could result in a wave of new schools that outstrip funding for public education. If this version now passes the Senate, the House still has to approve Goedde’s changes.
