    Buck the Core is the theme of a rally planned for January 30 at the Idaho State Capitol. The rally which will take place on the south steps from 10 AM until 1 PM is being organized by Idahoans for Local Education and Idaho Education Watch.

    The rally’s title, Buck the Core, was chosen to focus Idahoans on the failures of Common Core education reforms which came to Idaho in the form of Props 1,2, and 3 (the Luna Laws) According to event organizer, Mila Wood, Governor Otter’s recent education budget proposal continues the piece by piece implementation of the Luna Laws which Idahoans overwhelmingly rejected in 2013. “It’s time for Idahoans to send the message to their elected officials that federal and state micromanagement of education is not working. Interference by non-profit foundations is not working. It’s time to return to common sense and local control and to let teachers do their jobs,” says Wood.

    Dr. Duke Pesta, a nationally recognized expert on federal takeover of public education, Mr. Russ Fulcher, 2018 candidate for governor, and Dr. Geoffrey Thomas, Idaho 2015 Superintendent of the Year will be featured speakers.
