Hazel: School Will Start On Time

On her Facebook wall, Chairman Christa Hazel of the Coeur d'Alene School Board posted her speech from the Back To School Breakfast rally this morning: "I’ve been asked about the status of contract negotiations from many concerned parents. They ask, 'What does this mean for my child?' I am unwavering in my assurance: School will start on time. Our teachers are professionals and they place the interest of the student above all else. Your child is going to have a great school year. I believe this isn’t an opinion, but fact based on a track record. We are a resilient and strong school district. Just as you see in a large family, one where two figureheads, each equally passionate in their love for the family, have a disagreement. Life doesn’t stop and wait. There isn’t a time-out while disagreement is resolved. The family carries on. Eventually, things work out. I believe this will be true for us." More here.

Question: How do you expect the teacher negotiations to turn out?
