BOISE, Idaho: Idaho Fourth District Judge Timothy Hansen ruled in favor of Senate Bill 1108, upholding the law that the Idaho Education Association hoped to overturn by litigation.

The ruling is expected to be appealed to the Idaho Supreme Court, with the IEA issuing a statement that read, in part: "The bills wrongly curtail the rights of teachers, the IEA, and its local education associations, and they rob local school districts’ ability to make the best decisions for students."

A referendum to overturn the law, along with two other referendums to repeal bills the IEA referred to in its statement, is already on the statewide 2012 ballot. Proposition 1 would repeal Senate Bill 1108, which governs collective bargaining rights dealing with teachers in the state.[1]
