As always, SOUND OFF!
Dear D181 Board of Education Members and Dr. White:
Last night I attended the D86 Board meeting. Dr. Law publicly reported on legislative school funding actions taken in the last 2 weeks in Springfield and the possible negative ramifiations D86 will face as a result.
I urge all of you to watch the portion of last night's Videopodcast and his Superintendent's report on this issue.
It can be accessed at https://vimeo.com/232640018 and begins at Counter 1:38:50.
This is not Dr. Law's first public report on the school funding issues. He has been transparent, candid and willing to lay out the issues not only to the D86 BOE, but also to the D86 community. He should be commended for his proactive approach to these important school funding issues.
Dr. Law's proactive reporting style should be emulated by Dr. White in D181. The D181 community deserves to have a superintendent who stays ahead of the issues, just as Dr. Law has in D86.
I urge the D181 BOE to request that Dr. White begin publicly addressing state funding issues in more detail than he has in the past.
