Then when they pay their attornies a lot of money they will learn there is nothing illegal going on here. So go ahead and waste a lot of money. Good luck!

Sarli is a joke. He has been in the district far too long and needed to leave. He is disrespectful and arrogant. He has been on a power trip for years and puts the union before what is good for kids...consistently.
Let's all think back to a few Cinco de Mayo performances that he coreographed and allowed middle school girls to perform in a provocative manner.
He may be a pillar of the community, but not good for kids. Good-bye Roberto, and it has been a long time coming.

I know someone posted here about a month ago....about a complaint made against Mr. Sarli about a female student making accusations towards him.
Does anybody remember that?

board members of dist 130 and Dr Lauk are unfair and really suck at their job.They say they are there for the kids well not in this case!!! They go and fire a great teacher without getting their facts straight!! Just because Mr. Sarli speaks his mind and stands up for what he feels is right doesn't make him a bad person. Before you start pointing fingers look at your own lives every single one of you on the board have something you hide...let's start with homosexuality, adultry, theft should I go on....because I could!!! This community needs to get to know who we vote for before they get in office...District 130 could be a great district but that won't happen because of who we have now...I know I won't vote for most of them anymore...

Seriously do you actually believe they just fired this teacher for no apparent reason? Come on really.

The school board members (by the way why don’t you run if you are so dissatisfied) would not put themselves in jeopardy of the receiving end of a lawsuit. They have legal council present at all meetings. If you want answers as to why Mr. Sarli was fired ask him. He is free to speak his mind. The School board and administration are forbidden and if they did would have a lawsuit slapped on them by Mr Sarli faster than you could shake your finger.

There is a lot more to this story then you and I know. It has to be very serious charges for the administration and the board to go right to termination.

And by the way this is 2011 it is not against the law to be a homosexual. If you have evidence of any member stealing you should present your evidence to the police department at once. My guess is you don’t have any evidence and either are lying or going on hearsay. My guess is you also have no proof adultery was committed unless you committed adultery with someone on the board so then you would have first hand knowledge, but once again I bet you are either lying or are going on hearsay.

So go directly to Mr Sarli and ask him point blank why he was dismissed. If he is as honest as you think he will tell you. After all he is innocent isn’t he? Makes one wonder.

Sorry to say but the old saying goes.."Where there's smoke, there's fire". Mr. Sarli is doing the proper thing & waiting this one out until all the facts are in and the investigation is completed. If after all this is done and he is vindicated of all accusations made against him, I will personally encourage him to sue the living bejeesus out each & every single individual who participated in this debacle that has tarnished his name. I will give him names of excellent lawyers who sue for everything these people have INCLUDING their dreams.

Man you people are unbelievable. What will you do if the charges are substaniated? So go get your scumbag lawyers and let them sue.

How about this. Lets all wait until all the facts are out. As a long time resident I remember a few years back when a principal was fired and everyone in Blue Island wanted to lynch the Superintenant and board. The beloved principal sat at the meeting like a proud peacock. The board was forbidden to discuss why she was fire. She said nothing. I wondered why untik later on when all the facts came out. SHE WAS IN THE WRONG.

Hold your judgement until all facts are known.

Roberto Sarli is known to be out on the forefront of any and all accusations. He hides behind a so called organization called CASA. This so called organization has only a handful of members. Those people are always casting judgment, casting stones, blaming everyone and anyone. To top it off, as soon as someone makes comment about them, they throw out: “we will sue you”…”sue the city”…”sue the park”…”sue the school district”…sue sue sue sue…This is a serious matter that was revealed. When you have a pending police investigation and elected school board members firing a tenured teacher, it is serious. I don’t think these actions were done without proper cause or justification. The truth will be soon unveiled to the public. As far as I see it, Roberto Sarli and CASA are only getting what they deserve on this Blog….
