Larry Wylie dedicated his career to education. Before His 24 years at Lincoln Way , he logged in 20+Read More in Elmhurst. Paid his furs and climbed through the ranks. Originally from Elmhurst in DuPage County (heavily Republican), my bet is he is not a Democrat, but not 100% certain. Thank you Mr. Wylie for your service.

Certainly an exorbitant retirement for education. Why most tenured Yale professors don't retire atRead More that level. Perhaps the actual educators who have that time in, same or better education who paid their'furs' in actually educating would highly disagree. I know I do.

Why not do both? People can look at the pics while they walk through, but probably won't take theRead More time to stop at a touchscreen. Nice that students care about tradition and history.

Since when did "graduating" 8th grade become a milestone? It is not. You are expected toRead More graduate 8th grade. It's completely ridiculous and we wonder why today's youth feels entitled. It's because we are celebrating every single non-celebratory "achievement". Maybe it's an IL thing. I'm from MI and we did not have caps, gowns and parties following the completion of our 8th grade school year.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

I don't think magnet schools should be included. All the other schools have to take all students inRead More their district, magnet schools can pick and choose best students.

Time is money, these teens should be charged, they caused alarm, school was on lock down policemenRead More were having to investigate the situation, this isn't something that should be taken lightly!!!
