COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A northern Idaho school district's offering of an internationally focused curriculum is back under the spotlight.
The Coeur d'Alene district decided last month to discontinue the International Baccalaureate program, which was once targeted by protesters as anti-American, at the high school level. The school board agreed then to take a harder look at the program in one of their elementary schools.
Board chairman Tom Hamilton now says trustees may move up a decision on Hayden Meadows Elementary School's classes.
Hamilton told Coeur d'Alene Press trustees wanted to take a measured approach but that's no longer an option because of the program's ardent supporters. Hamilton says he's been contacted by several families who claim that because they don't support the classes, they've been intimidated by parents and faculty who do.
