Eden: Pay Attention To Our Schools

On the new Citizens for a Positive Coeur d'Alene, Eden Irgens sounds the warning call re: the Coeur d'Alene School Board: “Our school board of trustees voted out IB last night. What other items may be on their target list? Trustee Ann Seddon was adamant that the new Sorensen principal not be officially hired without board approval. Could Sorensen be next on the list? Sorensen has proven results and amazing test scores, so if it IS on the list — why? It's very important that parents with kids in school, or who will be attending school in the future, become knowledgeable and involved in this ultra important element of our community. The best public school system is something we must all demand - and there have been rumors and discussions about what the true goals are for this school board. School board meetings are the first Monday of each month. Attending them will open your eyes.”

Question: How much attention are you paying to Coeur d'Alene schools and the Coeur d'Alene School Board?
