GOP Governor Brad Little Focuses On Education In Idaho

The RGA reports:

Idaho’s new GOP Governor Brad Little is committed to improving education and supporting teachers across his state.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that Governor Little is not only focused on increasing compensation for Idaho educators but also on ensuring that teachers are “respected for the profession they’re from,” calling that “the most important thing that we can do.” Governor Little joins other GOP chief executives – including Brian Kemp of Georgia and Eric Holcomb of Indiana – in making increased teacher compensation a top priority.

With Governor Little, Idaho teachers know they have a firm advocate working tirelessly to improve their state’s education system for educators and students.

Whenever Idaho Gov. Brad Little makes a decision, he said he makes sure it supports his top priority of keeping Idaho’s young adults in the Gem State.

“Everything we do in my administration is based on that one filter,” Little said. “How do we create the best possible opportunity for Idaho kids to stay here (and) for those that left, to come back?”

The Republican governor took a brief break from the legislative session and returned to his alma mater Monday to address more than 100 University of Idaho fraternity and sorority students during a presentation titled, “From Greek to Governor,” inside the International Ballroom at the Bruce M. Pitman Center.

Little said what is more important than teacher pay is that Idaho’s educators are honored.

“They need to be fairly compensated and we still got a long way to go there,” he said. “But what they absolutely have to be, is they have to be respected for the profession they’re from. And to me, that’s the most important thing that we can do.”
