As Idaho’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Luna is a state and national leader on education reform. Through a collaborative approach, Tom has spearheaded efforts to raise student achievement and create a system that focuses on the needs of the customer, not the bureaucracy, and his leadership has yielded results! Student achievement is on the rise and more resources are being focused to where they matter most: the classroom. Idaho’s increase in student achievement is being celebrated not only in Idaho, but being recognized nationally. Idaho has led the nation in the increase in the number of schools reaching the state’s high academic goals for two years in a row. In 2007, 26 percent of Idaho schools made the high academic goal, known as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). In 2010, over 60 percent of Idaho schools reached this goal.
