Item: Schools are 'social service bureaucracies': Duncan Koler criticizes programs that help needy children/Coeur d'Alene Press
More here: At Monday's school board meeting in Coeur d'Alene, Hayden anti-IB activist, Duncan Koler, criticized the district for proposing to add an advanced pottery class to its course offerings for students. Koler also found fault with some of the services the school district offers children in need of food, clothing and health care, referring to a presentation made at the December school board meeting. Trustees at that meeting heard about the district's homeless program and a privately funded initiative that sends backpacks filled with food home with kids the counselors know do not have enough to eat during the weekends.
