Boise Schools endorses a "no" vote on the controversial Propositions 1, 2 and 3 on the November ballot.
Boise School Board members all oppose the Luna laws, saying they put politics ahead of children's education.
"To me this is about politics, this isn't about education,” said Maria Greeley, Boise School Board member This is about pushing a political agenda so it doesn't put the interests of our students or teachers first."
The propositions all deal with Superintendent Tom Luna's Students Come First education reform laws on collective bargaining, pay-for-performance and technology in the classroom.
“I will have to say everyone was really shocked when these laws were presented,” said Boise School Board member Nancy Gregory. “Parents want teachers in their children's classroom and classes that are manageable. "
Boise Schools would like to see the funds dedicated to students come first distributed to classrooms at the local level rather than statewide.
