We can restrain the federal government without a convention of states

By Wayne Hoffman
January 31, 2023
Idaho Freedom Foundation senior policy fellow Ron Nate wrote a great article last year on why a convention of states is a horrible idea. I want to add to his thesis a bit because former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and Convention of States chief Mark Meckler are in Boise this week to convince Idahoans (including, […]

By Idaho Freedom Foundation staff
January 30, 2023
By Anna K. Miller and Kaitlyn Shepherd  Ibram X. Kendi, critical race theory advocate and author of “How to be an Antiracist,” was reportedly paid $25K and a travel buyout of $2,500 to speak for one hour at a Martin Luther King, Jr. event at Boise State University.  The contract between the university and Kendi’s […]

Lent drags his feet on school choice legislation

By Wayne Hoffman
January 27, 2023
While Utah and Iowa lawmakers have passed robust education choice legislation, Idahoans are legitimately asking why nothing has emerged so far during Idaho’s legislative session, now entering its fourth week. It’s not for lack of trying.  Conservative Republicans in the Idaho Senate have been fighting tooth and nail just to get their bill introduced. Senate […]

Idaho Freedom Foundation and Idaho Freedom Action condemn Sen. Dave Lent for blocking Education Freedom Act

By Idaho Freedom Foundation staff
January 26, 2023
Senate Education Chairman Dave Lent of Idaho Falls has repeatedly rejected attempts this week by the conservative senators of his committee to introduce their universal education choice bill. The Idaho Freedom Foundation and Idaho Freedom Action strongly condemned this blatant obstructionism. “Dave Lent is a phony who gives lip service to education choice while doing […]

Idaho Medical Education is Harming Youth In the Guise of Health Care

By Niklas Kleinworth
January 26, 2023
Idaho taxpayers are subsidizing pro-abortion, radical gender, and critical race theory ideologies through the University of Washington School of Medicine’s WWAMI program.   The WWAMI program is a regional cooperative between Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho that allows the University of Washington to operate medical school extensions throughout the state. Idaho plans to spend more […]

Education freedom works like grocery freedom

By Ronald M. Nate, Ph.D.
January 24, 2023
What if Idaho did groceries the same way it does public education? Each community would have a local grocery district, and families would be assigned their local grocery stores. Everyone would get the same groceries in the same amounts. Many would mistakenly think the food is free because there would be no charge at the public […]

Sanchez’s campaign spending shows she either violated state law (again) or she’s reckless with other people’s money

By Wayne Hoffman
January 23, 2023
I’m glad Lisa Sanchez’s stint as Boise’s only racist city council member has come to an end after she moved out of her district and subsequently kicked herself from office. We all remember how Sanchez said she didn’t have children because of a “fear of their abuse and murder by white people." But Sanchez still […]

By Wayne Hoffman
January 20, 2023
Boise State University is dragging its feet in releasing a copy of the contract the school signed with racist speaker Ibram X. Kendi. The university’s spokesman, Mike Sharp, sent the Idaho Freedom Foundation an email Wednesday that said it could take the school until Feb. 1 to locate the records we’re looking for: the contract […]

Time for state leaders to act after IEA president admits woke trainings reach Idaho classrooms

By Wayne Hoffman
January 20, 2023
Idaho Education Association president Layne McInelly’s presentation to the House and Senate education committees this week got very little legacy news attention, except for a mere six sentences from Idaho Education News, which reported how “excited” McInelly and the rest of the education establishment is about Gov. Brad Little’s education plans.  The real story, however, […]

Boise State University to expand Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion bureaucracy with new high-ranking official

By Anna Miller
January 18, 2023
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts have been sewn into the administration of Boise State University, and the university just can’t resist the urge to keep growing its DEI bureaucracy. Not only does it dedicate more staff to the DEI cause than any other public university in Idaho, but it has also begun seeking a […]
