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.

"Virtual walls"? Geezus... GPS spoofing is but one way around the geofence. The otherRead More is simply walking up to someone and saying "HEY *(&*(^^#&*(Y($*() !!!!!"

Redistrict. It's silly to burden taxpayers with more building than will be needed long term.

As a real estate agent, I have some clients that don't want to move into district 30 and 31 becauseRead More of the fact that the junior high splits between the two high schools. Parents want their children to make friends in junior high and keep them into high school. Allowing the students to stay together throughout all of grade school, junior high and high school could potentially increase property values in those districts.

No problem, just send the surplus differential up to Deerfield in a couple of years; trendingRead More demographics indicate that enrollments at DHS will decline - significantly, which is why, naturally, Dist. 113 just suckered taxpayers into floating a $180,000,000 bond to retrofit some of the structures at DHS and HPHS {in addition to spending tens of millions more from and depleting current surpluses}. GBH and GBS will be able to negotiate deep discounts to bus on up to DHS and HPHS - as soon as the Empire Builders of Dist. 113 are proven to have entirely got it wrong - again. With the dire state of the State of Illinois' finances, Dist. 113 taxpayers are in for a real shocker when the state 'reapportions' contributions to public-education, coupled with the Federal government halting payments for the former Fort Sheridan base's children formulary and District 113 enrollments drop. It's time to bail out of Dist. 113 if you're a home-owner; interest rates are climbing, those coming up to replace the former middle-middle and lower-upper residents are dwindling and it's not like the... other residents of Lake County [Waukegan, North Chicago, Round Lake Beach, etc] are going to sustain the County's insatiable appetite to spend other people's money. If you think making the recent hike by 2/3rds of the dire state of the State of Illinois' income tax permanent is the end of increased taxation and fees to be heaped upon the already sagging shoulders of the ever fewer and fewer taxpayers in Illinois left standing, think again. There's that pesky un-funded obligation of the public pensions, the recent smoke and mirrors legislation to reduce even slightly won't stand up to legal scrutiny under the State's Constitutional obligation not to reduce those benefits after the fact on retirees/those vested therein. Yet, Illinois continues the charade of defined benefit pension plans - which private companies/the real world abandoned a couple of decades ago when deflation became the rule of the day. But, what's a couple of decades of Illinois' hacks kicking the can down the road? Illinois - the land that time and integrity forgot. Abandon all hope ye who enter here.
