Idaho senators raised new concerns Tuesday about increasing class sizes in the state’s schools, as state schools Superintendent Tom Luna’s sweeping school reform plan remained stalled on the Senate calendar despite narrowly clearing a Senate committee last week. Increasing class sizes in grades 4-12 is the centerpiece of Luna’s reform plan, allowing the state to cut 770 teaching jobs in the next two years and providing the millions in savings that then would be funneled into technology upgrades, teacher performance pay and online courses for high school students. The controversial plan was protested by hundreds at rallies across the state Monday, and senators say they’ve been receiving strong input from Idahoans who oppose the plan.
