BOISE – The state Board of Education signed off on Idaho’s plan to reject the latest requirements for determining student progress under the federal No Child Left Behind law, though some trustees questioned public schools chief Tom Luna about his timing and motives behind the move.

The board voted 4-2 in a special meeting Friday to approve the plan amid concerns from board member Don Soltman, who noted that Idaho was ditching the higher benchmarks three days before the state’s latest batch of testing results would be released on Monday.
