Governor Little hails education investments in Kuna
During Idaho’s most recent legislative session, the state increased K-12 funding by $300 million
KUNA, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Idaho Governor Brad Little was in Kuna on Thursday to highlight investments made in education and literacy in the state of Idaho.
During Idaho’s most recent legislative session, the state increased K-12 funding by $300 million, and also approved an additional $47 million for literacy.
“With this added investment, funding for literacy will increase five-fold since I took office more than three years ago. It is an accomplishment I am truly proud of,” Governor Little said.
“My priority has been and will continue to be getting all Idaho kids to read proficiently by the end of third grade. It just makes sense. Our investments in education later will have more impact if we can give students a strong start. It is not only our constitutional obligation but our moral obligation as well. I appreciate my legislative partners for sharing my passion for making sure we meet our obligations to our education system and ensure success for Idaho students and families!”
