SR Edit: Don’t Cede NIC Control For Scant Tax Relief

Some Kootenai County residents would willingly trade local control of North Idaho College for property tax relief. That’s why the siren song from Boise and southeast Idaho for a state-funded community college system resonates in the region. After all, what’s wrong with a state system with control centered in Boise, if it means $100 or so less on your property tax bill? Why should homeowners in the North Idaho College and College of Southern Idaho districts help fund their colleges when four-year programs, like Boise State, offer two-year degrees underwritten by the state? North Idaho College taxpayers should be wary of the Trojan horse offered by Southern Idaho politicians.
