One morning this week at Coeur d’Alene High School, students in a theater class glazed clay soup bowls they molded for a fundraiser aimed at providing hungry students with healthy snacks. In another part of the building, two dozen girls in Advanced Glee, a choral music class inspired by the popular TV show “Glee,” took part in a mock dance audition to Janet Jackson’s “Alright.” Down another corridor, 28 students packed into a French language class worked on translating questions from English using some new vocabulary and grammar concepts. One boy gave another a high-five for a correct answer. This is a glimpse of the educational spice rack kept stocked by a property tax levy that has grown ever more vital to the Coeur d’Alene School District/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

Question: Is there any reason to vote against the Coeur d'Alene school levy?
