Chairman Explains School Switch

Coeur d'Alene School Board Chairman Tom Hamilton addresses possible problems at Hayden Meadows:

Secondly, while I would say that most of the staff at Hayden Meadows are excellent at what they do and have been a blessing to my children personally, I stand by my wife’s description of a “poisonous element” at that school. That element is small, but the impact they have had on us as a family is significant. One member of the staff at HM is on record in the CDA Press referring to schools in our district that don’t have PYP as “mediocre” and parents such as my wife and I who oppose PYP as part of a “subculture” similar to the “KKK and the Aryan Nations”. Similar views and other more hurtful statements have been expressed to other people that we know, but since those are 3rd party to me, I won’t repeat them here. However, the quotes I reference above are in print and can easily be verified if one cares to look. More here.
