As one of the co-authors of a bill to give high school students the ability to graduate early and receive a state-funded scholarship for doing so, Rep. Branden Durst, D-Boise, is pretty proud of his creation.
Durst told IdahoReporter.com in a video interview Tuesday that he will go right to work to recruit school districts to participate in the program and that he fully expects the program to be successful in the long run. He also shared his thoughts on the high and low points of the 2010 legislative session, including his most and least favorite pieces of legislation.
The other author of the early graduation plan, Rep. Steve Thayn, R-Emmett, talked with IdahoReporter.com about the final passage of the legislation and what he will do to aid in developing the program. See what he had to say here.
