Graves Circulates Pro PYP Petition

Adam Graves has started an online petition to be delivered to the Coeur d'Alene School Board, requesting that Primary Years Programme be kept at Haydens Meadows. Graves has 127 signatures. He's seeking 1000 signatures by Monday, when the School Board will meet to decide the fate of PYP:

We, the parents, voters and tax payers in the Coeur d'Alene School District do not want the PYP program removed from Hayden Meadows School. This petition is to keep an IB school program for a local grade school, Hayden Meadows. The program called PYP is under attack by a minority in the community who feel the education program is linked with the U.N. and a conspiracy to teach children to think globally and undermine their Christian American values. They are claiming the results of the program are not justified by the cost which has been proven not so by test scores alone. You can sign the petition here.

Question: Do you plan to sign the petition?
