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.

都是公立高中么?

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.

gregg phillips May 3, 2014 at 08:43 am
RJ, put your real name here so we can tell if you are real or not. the problems with society areRead More because of too much tolerance and enabling and that is why you are so mis guided ? please seek help

"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($*() !!!!!" Or use a different app created with a bogus email account... *sigh*. Sticks and stones people... sticks and stones... Walk it off and move on...

I am not a teacher so I have no expertise. I have an ingrained bias against these standardizedRead More tests especially those which are supposed to measure a student's success. I suspect that the teachers required to prepare their charges for the test are teaching the test. Is that what we need? Does the test measure the ability of the student to succeed later or to have a grasp on the subject? And just, by the way, is the bias of the test - liberal, conservative, etc. I am sure that regardless of one's political ideology one would think there is some standard middle ground which students in history, social sciences, etc should receive - I ignore the fringes because they will never be satisfied. And are national standards in every subject appropriate? Are we emphasizing college as the goal for all students even though some may be harmed by such an emphasis? I am not going to get into Common Core which is controversial or even the standard tests for college admission. I admit to no knowledge or expertise. Those with such expertise and knowledge can chime in. I just note that American education seems to be failing, particularly at the grade and high school levels with all of this emphasis on standard testing - No Child Left Behind, etc., national standards, college as a goal (I am not suggesting that we de-emphasize a good college education - by no means - but are there some students who do not have the aptitude for whatever reason for a liberal art education, science or engineering or medical, and would do better in a trade school environment?).

Agreed, Grumpy! I grew up in Minnesota and we very rarely got ANY days off — however, I don'tRead More remember it ever being as cold as it was today!
Grumpy Old Man January 7, 2014 at 08:50 am
Funny, the editor could understand. What is there not to understand? That in Milwaukee there wereRead More many sub zero days and average temperatures were in single digits during December through January and that snow was always on the ground. That students, included myself, walked to grade school and high school, some drove to high school and that schools were never closed due to the weather. It takes that much to explain to you what the above clearly stated without all of the adjectives, adverbs, etc.
Grumpy Old Man January 7, 2014 at 08:56 am
Paula - yeah - yesterday was on the colder side even for the time in Milwaukee when I was a kid - IRead More understand it was -17 in Minneapolis, by the way. I can't speak for the wind chill but I could sure feel it waiting for the bus. The ground temp in Green Bay on December 31, 1967 was -14 windchill -55 for the Ice Bowl. The ground temp was not much better in Milwaukee where I watched it (indoors) but the windchill I don't recall. Memory lane.

The article says he withdrew $70,000 from his personal bank account. Have the authorities been ableRead More to trace and perhaps start to recover the remaining money which was embezzled? I would hope they are doing something to recover it.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy

Particularly impressive when you consider that Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy gets the award forRead More top flight academic results even though the school has an open admissions policy. My son is at Payton now, but he went to OLMCA for K - 8th, and we love the school.

Rahm at his most manipulative: 1) give principals "control" over their budgets, 2) cutRead More funding to schools, and, 3) try not to take any of the heat.

Blaine is wasting time and energy reasoning with the moronic city machine.
Harmon June 30, 2013 at 10:19 am
Low information article. Basic info missing. What's the per student allocation? What's theRead More teacher/student ratio? How do they compare to last year? What's the long term student body population projection? How many admin positions are there as compared to teacher positions? Are any of them devoted to political graft such as "certified lawn care specialist?" (Don't laugh - evidently our Great State Legislature requires this.) What are these mysterious "specialty programs?" Lots of stuff that could rise above the USA Today/TV news level of this article.
Jeff Friedman May 7, 2013 at 06:29 pm
This is great news! As someone who reads a lot of the comments on Patch, I've noticed crime and realRead More estate are probably the top hot button topics. Teenagers who believe they have a bright future are less likely to throw it away by committing crimes, using drugs, or doing other risky behavior. So, our community definitely benefits. Congrats to the students, teachers, parents, and faculty!
Mary Davis April 22, 2013 at 04:19 pm
Wow. Are the schools that are participating in this seemingly charitable project aware of whoRead More USAgain really is? They are a for-profit company associated with an extremely sketchy Danish organization, and they do virtually nothing to help the communities they get donations from. This is detailed in this excellent article: http://www.phlmetropolis.com/2012/11/the-secret-life-of-clothing-bins.php that I suggest you read before donating. What's wrong with the Good Will or another recycler that works locally? Mary Davis, Lakeview resident
