Letter Pooh-Poohs Parents’ Grievance

In a strident grievance, the local left shout their unhappiness with the Cd’A School Board for axing their program — IB/PYP. They’re so upset, they sent copies to Human Rights groups, U.S. Department of Justice, and even set up a Moveon.org petition so leftists across the country can sign. With such a severe case of righteous indignation, how have they managed to keep cool over the 5 1/2 months since the board ended PYP? Answer: It’s school board election season. Complainants Ashley Unruh and Nicole Olson worked with IB/PYP activist Katie Kladar to keep the program. Kladar formed Coeur d’Alene Education Partnership (“CEP”) the day after the judge voided Wanda Quinn’s illegal appointment by Edie Brooks, who supported IB/PYP. Kladar and CEP, including past board members, are supporting liberal school board candidates Christa Hazel, Dave Eubanks and Tom Hearn, trying to take back control of the board. Many of the grievance petitioners are Kladar’s associates and/or members of CEP/Jacqueline Mayo, Coeur d'Alene, Coeur d'Alene Press letter to the editor. More here.

Question: Does this sound like a letter chock full of Reagan Republican talking points to you, too?
