A Grangeville teacher — and opponent of the new Idaho Core Standards — is jumping into the rapidly growing Republican field for state superintendent.
John Eynon filed paperwork Friday naming a campaign treasurer, a precursor to raising money for a race.
His campaign website — emblazoned with the slogan, “Common Sense, NOT Common Core” — leaves no question about his signature issue. Eynon describes himself as a “public school teacher and education professional.” He describes the Idaho Core Standards as unproven and a federal “overreach” into Idaho classrooms.
