Is Tech-Ed Campus Truly Win-Win?

RE: Coeur d’Alene Press op-ed: Kootenai Technical Education Campus is win-win situation/Hazel Bauman, Jerry Keane, Mary Ann Ranells

Christa Hazel: It’s difficult for me to categorize KTEC as a “Win-Win” when 1) there are several schools in our district with no HVAC or 25% recycled fume air; 2) my school principal has warned there isn’t enough money for paper or to fix our copier so we may not have homework next year (seriously); 3) the Long Range Planning Committee for the dist…rict has identified 42 million dollars of listed projects that have been waiting for years to be addressed. While KTEC is a good idea, I don’t understand why NOW is the right time to move forward expanding programs when our existing buildings need improvement. And for that reason, I will be voting no on the Aug 24 levy. Whether you vote yes or no, please make a point to participate in the upcoming levy election.

Question: Do you view the Kootenai Technical Education Campus being pushed by the local school districts superintendents in the Press op-ed piece a win-win in these tough economic times, too?
