Fernan Principal: Public Ed Flourishing

Recent condemnation of teachers and the public school system saddens me. I read Letters to the Editor, listen to politicians and watch the nightly news to learn that public education is failing our children. Talk radio and television commentators warn of the bottomless money pit taxpayers are asked to fill with their hard-earned cash to support greedy teachers who demand more income while stealing money from students with no improvement in educational outcomes. I question where these statements come from? This is not the public education system I know/ Bill Rutherford, Fernan Elementary pricnipal, letter to Coeur d'Alene Press editor. More here.

Question side of the public education divide are you? Do you think public education is flourishing? Or failing?
