I listened to state Representatives Jim Addis and Paul Amador speak at the Kootenai County Democrat lunch Friday.
All very good and local questions were asked ó things that truly matter. Funding of education was one of the many good questions. For me, Iím very proud to live in a country where every child gets a chance at an education and Iím willing to pay for it.
An Idaho education never seems to meet someoneís expectations so blame gets cast to the teachers, the teachersí union, the administration ó but never on the parents, where the blame truly belongs.
I propose this solution to the state of Idaho: The Idaho child tax credit should be adjustable. The better the GPA, the better the deduction. The lower the GPA, the lower deduction. This would allow the non-caring parents to pay for wasting teachersí and studentsí time.
Problem solved. Next one, please?
