Rep. Giddings requests public records from Boise School District that would cost over $150K to assemble


The Boise School District is responding to a public records request filed by the co-chair of the lieutenant governor’s Indoctrination Task Force, reports CBS2 News, but if she wants to see everything she requested, it will cost more than $150,000, the district said in its response Thursday.

The district says Rep. Priscilla Giddings, R-White Bird, who is running for lieutenant governor, requested curriculum and lessons related to the district’s English Learners program and Advancement Via Individual Determination Program, also known as AVID.

Giddings, who co-chairs Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin’s new school indoctrination task force, also requested all materials from programs that are not part of the district’s adopted curriculum, which include the Learning for Justice program (formerly Teaching Tolerance), the Nicole Hannah Jones 1619 project, and the 1776 project.

The request makes the Boise School District the “latest target” of the Indoctrination Task Force, a district spokesman said. The district said the request included daily assignments, “a request requiring individual teacher-by-teacher searches amounting to thousands of administrative and teacher hours to perform,” a spokesman for the district said.

1. Gawd. The Idaho legislature doesn't fund K-12 education as mandated by the constitution as it is.

Now, the mcgeachin/giddings squad wants to unnecessarily suck even more from one of the largest districts in the state. Why? Because she thinks the Boise Big City Libruls are indoctrinating students to communism or whatever her liberal-agenda-fantasies-of-the-moment might be?

They do the same thing with ill-advised legislation. They ignore the Idaho Attorney Generals opinion, pass it into law, then give millions to private attorneys to try and defend the constitutional merits of it. And those boondoggles are budgeted unlike these whimsical requests they come up with.

The party of limited government and spending attacks again.

2. I'm glad I didn't take that job in Idaho last year

I have a hard time keeping silent for such idiocy.
