Statement of Attorney General Wasden Regarding University Place Management Review
The State Board of Education did the right thing by releasing the University Place Management Review. The board deserves much credit for its decision.
By giving every Idahoan the opportunity to review all of the facts, however uncomfortable or embarrassing those facts may be, the State Board of Education builds public confidence in government and reminds us that our system works.
The report is long and complex. It deserves thorough and thoughtful review, rather than knee-jerk reactions and conclusions.
The State Board of Education is evaluating the report to set policies and procedures so that similar situations will not happen in the future. My office will also review the report and be prepared to provide advice and legal representation at the board's request. I will also be prepared to meet with and advise the legislature on this issue at their request.
