Idaho hates public education it has been shooting for dead last in education funding while running a state budget surplus they regularly decline to invest in federally matched education dollars out of spite and fear.
That doesn't sound good -- is the Federal government attaching too many strings with the money?
Education funding and education results are different. One study says Idaho is #29 in Education and #23 in K-12.
Same study says Oregon's #35 in Education and #37 in K-12. With the K-12 you've got us beat by 14 spots on the state list. And with less funding?
Doing more with less government money is what everyone should try to do. How many new ipads does a school need, anyway?
Edit: on this site, Idaho has Oregon beat in math, science, reading and writing. The phrase "significantly lower" and Oregon are used in the same sentence.

So long story short, no, E. Oregon won't "succeed in seceding" because we're collectively dumber than a mis-measured fence post.
