IB Teacher Defends PYProgramme

On the Citizens for a Positive Coeur d'Alene Facebook wall, someone has posted a comment made by Hayden Meadows teacher Courtney Greene:

I want to make clear, as an IB teacher, a patron of this district, and a citizen of the community that there are things I will not tolerate. There is an absolute truth in my eyes. I teach my kids, both in my classroom and at my dinner table, that if they see injustice in the world they should act. They do every day. They do not tolerate bullying of their classmates. They do not tolerate mediocrity. They diligently work for causes; from helping the hungry with food drives to volunteering to read to younger children, because they will not tolerate hunger or illiteracy.It is time for me to follow suit. My action is small. I speak to let my community know that PYP does not tolerate extreme radicalism. It embraces a group of people in turmoil in our world right now, understanding their plight to feel safe in their own homes. It tolerates the human endeavor. Full comment here.
