After giving the victors in the Coeur d'Alene School Board elections unenthusiastic congratulations, Duncan Koler of Citizens for Better Education writes in a Coeur d'Alene Press letter to the editor:
“To the thousands of conservative voters who did not vote — shame on you. You have likely prevented real conservative changes from being made in our schools, to improve academics, restore acceptable standards of behavior and preserve local control. You can expect a supplemental tax levy as a reward for your lack of commitment. We will continue to fight for our students and the taxpayers. Anything short of excellence in academics and the most value for our taxes is unacceptable. We have a long way to go to improve academics. But as to budgeting, it is fortunate for the incoming trustees that the board and Mr. Wardell have made great strides over the past year. Don’t mess it up!” More here.
Question: And when did Mr. Koler move to the Coeur d'Alene area — and begin trying to fix our education system?
