Title: ” Idaho Courts: Can They Remain Independent and Impartial in a Hyper-Partisan Era?”
Talking Points:
Has the judiciary come to be regarded as a third political branch of government?
Should judges be selected based on political affiliation and positions taken on issues likely to come before them?
Does civic education provided by schools and the media adequately inform the public about the judicial process and reasons for judicial decisions?
If there is a civic education deficit, what can citizens do about it?
