BLACKFOOT â€” At least 75 teachers, parents and students rallied for an hour Monday in support of Idaho teachers and educators and in opposition to Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna's "Students Come First" plan.
Teachers stood with signs on the east and west corners of Meridian and Judicial from about 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Participants were greeted with plenty of horns honking from drivers who drove past.
FIRTH â€“Jason Clemensâ€™ only teaching assignment so far has been teaching agricultural education in Firth. Clemens is also the advisor for the Firth Future Farmers of America (FFA).
Clemens grew up in Ontario, Ore., graduating from high school there. He attended the University of Idaho, graduating with a degree in agricultural education in May 2000. In the fall of that year, Clemens accepted the job of Ag teacher at Firth High School.
So why did you chose agricultural education?
