Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna has been tagged by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign to serve as a policy adviser.
In advance of Romney's scheduled education policy adress, slated for Wednesday, May 31, his campaign unveiled its so-called Education Policy Advisory Group.The 20-member committee includes Luna and former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige.
"As [Massachusetts] governor, [Romney] showed how states can truly put students first and raise academic achievement for all children," said Luna in a statement released by the Idaho State Republican Party. "We have worked toward the same goals in Idaho, passing the most comprehensive education reform in the country to ensure every student can graduate from high school and go on to postsecondary education without the need for remediation. Now, we must make this possible for every child in every state.”
