The Coeur d'Alene School Board individually endorsed the Luna Laws after stopping short of collectively taking a stand as an entire board. Trustees Terri Seymour and Ann Seddon did so in writing. Of Proposition 3, Seymour and Seddon wrote in a letter to the Coeur d'Alene Press editor:
We fully support Proposition 3. Technology has become essential in 21st century schools. The proposed computing devices are a tool and not a replacement for teachers any more than textbooks replace teachers. It is a rare student who can obtain a college or technical degree without taking an online class. Students need this skill. Classes can also be taken through interactive computer classes with a real teacher instructing the class. Most teachers would treasure the ability to individualize instruction with computer applications.
Proposition 3 was overwhelmingly rejected at the polls, statewide and locally. The other two propositions failed badly too, a repudiation of all those follow-the-leader partisans who blindly follow the Otter administration and Superintendent Tom Luna. So you have to ask yourselves:
Question: How out of step is the current Coeur d'Alene School Board that includes three appointees?
