We read this Letter to the Editor this morning on the online Doings. We couldn't agree more and commend the community member for speaking out during the 10/20/14 D86 board meeting.
"Civil disobedience is defined as “the refusal to obey certain governmental laws or demands in order to influence legislation or policy, characterized by nonviolent methods.” Even at a small level, it’s an act I take seriously. As a rule, I favor civil discussion over civil disobedience. I encountered an exception to that rule at the Oct. 20 Hinsdale High School District 86 Board meeting.
