2011 Education Reform
Nonini has supported Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna's K-12 education reform package. The first bill was sent to the governor on March 9, 2011. That bill will restrict collective bargaining rights for teachers to salaries and benefits only. Additionally, tenure would be phased out for new teachers and existing teachers without tenure. "Through this plan, we are going to attract and retain more quality teachers in Idaho by offering a two-year contract, increased pay and the opportunity to earn bonuses," Nonini said.

Idaho Freedom Index
The Idaho Freedom Foundation, an Idaho-based, nonprofit educational research institute, released its "Idaho Freedom Index" in 2013. The index intended to show how Idaho legislators voted on the principles the Foundation seeks to promote. It measured each state legislator based on two tiers, which include whether legislators voted for or against bills that would create or eliminate government agencies, programs, and regulations, and bills that would impact the free market in a positive or negative way. Scores ranged from the highest possible score for members of the state Senate (194 points) and for members of the state House (180 points). A higher score indicated that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Foundation. Nonini received a score of 136 points in the 2013 index, ranking 2nd out of 35 members of the Idaho State Senate that were evaluated for the study.
Robert has a wife, Cathyanne.
