BOISE (Idaho Capital Sun) — Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin’s education indoctrination task force held its third meeting of the summer Thursday at the Idaho Statehouse but still has yet to allow any public testimony.
But task force members did receive their first challenge and some pushback for surrounding themselves with people they agree with.
Nafees Alam, a professor of social work at Boise State University who stressed he was speaking only for himself and not the university, spoke to the committee about confirmation bias and the trouble with not seeking out objective facts or challenging the beliefs and opinions they already have.
