Teachers in Idaho are resisting a state law that requires online courses and dictates the way in which computers are used, saying they were not consulted or given adequate training. Teachers say their salaries or jobs could be affected. "They object to being given a resource with strings attached, and without the needed support to use it effectively to improve student learning," said Sabrina Laine, vice president of the American Institutes for Research. A referendum in November could overturn the policy.
