Legislature addresses loophole that allowed Planned Parenthood into public school sex ed

By Idaho Freedom Foundation staff
March 24, 2023
When the Legislature passes a law, you expect the state to follow it. Idaho standards and law require that sex education in public schools must teach abstinence.  Seems simple, right? Unfortunately, Idaho law has also given local school boards authority to decide how kids will learn about abstinence in sexuality education, a loophole that Planned […]

By Brian Almon
March 20, 2023
The Idaho House of Representatives voted on two bills today, each of which can reveal something of how our legislators view the proper role of government.

By Wayne Hoffman
March 14, 2023
Last year, Gov. Brad Little was one of nearly two dozen Republican governors objecting to President Biden’s student loan forgiveness program.

Idaho Senate lurches to the left

By Idaho Freedom Foundation staff
March 13, 2023
Just when we thought the Idaho Senate couldn’t get any more left-of-center, two actions on Monday make us reconsider. One has to do with illegal immigration, and the other has the state funding abortions, transgender “medicine,” and social justice. First, immigration: Last Friday, when most in the Idaho Legislature took time off to honor the […]

By Idaho Freedom Foundation staff
March 13, 2023
By Anna Miller and Sam Dorman  IFF’s recent article about public school libraries circulating radical, obscene books has naturally prompted outrage. People want questions answered.

Want to know how to get escorted out of a committee hearing in the Idaho capitol? It’s easy; just shine a light on how a proposed bill benefits the donors to Governor Little.

By Idaho Freedom Foundation staff
March 3, 2023
Gender ideology pervades public schools, even in red states. Even in Idaho. Idaho’s public schools have assumed an outsized role in sex education.
