Just in case you ddnt know!!!!!!! Let me refresh some of you guys memories...This so called fieldtrip was also done for the Mayor Gary election also... So why is everyone making a big deal when the samething was done for the Mayor election...Okay i understand Gary is upset NOW because Curtis know longer supports him... Tough titty said the kitty but the milk is still good!!! Curtis McCall Jr for St.Clair County Board....
Sorry to inform you simple mind but Gary has NEVER had the kids go to the court house to vote, that was Jeff Radford who did that crap when he ran against Gary. You know that guy, it's the same Sprague Boy that Mr Morgan beat in the primary.
I think you better check those facts before you spew lies.
not again

Bottom line - this should not be happening - the school should not play a role in the political mess of Cahokia or the county - second - who did supervise the trip?? Was it a social studies teacher? Was it Isaac Sanders??(who is the husband of a sitting board member, who was given a job from the state grant, who has NO qualifications whatsoever or degree to justify his employment???)- third - shame on the administration for allowing this farce to continue!!!! enough already!!!

and you're full of crap too. It was Radford who had the high school students got to the court house when he ran for Mayor in the last mayor election. That is unless you are talking about Frank Bergman because he's the one that started this so-called tradition when he ran the 2nd time. Those are FACTS...

Oh and here are some more FACTS...
http://illinois.webschoolpro.com/cahokia-high...

Read the Illinois STATE LAW on the Subject of Field Trips while in School & what is in Cahokia School District's on hand book.

Tisk Tisk, well hell some people learn something new every day.

State law requires that all people having close contact with students in schools must have verification of having passed a "TB test"(<~~I wonder if the volunteers did this???) Please register the results of your TB test in the school office. Without this, you will not be allowed to provide parent volunteer service in the classroom.

Field trips are planned by teachers and designed to enrich the curriculum. A note and permission slip will be sent to you in advance of any field trip and will include cost, place, departure time and dress. The permission slip must be signed and returned to your child's teacher in order for the student to participate in the field trip.

Parents are frequently asked to chaperone field trips, and teachers rely on these parents to provide supervision for a group of students. While field trips are always fun for the students, they are intended to be extensions of the classroom curriculum and are learning activities. This is the parents' opportunity to participate with his/her child in an educational activity and to assist the classroom teacher. Unless it is specifically a family activity, we request that parents not bring other siblings along on field trips. Take this opportunity to give special attention to your child and play a crucial role in making this an important learning activity for the children in the class. The teacher is depending upon your undivided attention.

So where are those permission slips & TB shot verification at???

Quit whining here and race baiting and report it to folks who can make it public. www.propublica.org Those folks are not afraid of the county crook crew and get their funding in an independent manner, so they don't have to answer to any political party. They have some good investigative reporters. If you contact them with PROVABLE FACTS and don't sound like the drunk town gossip they will help you.

Kids should be able to vote without people talking to them (police) like they are criminals. Nor should the school staff be interrogated. What are these politicans coming to?

If they are involved in politics, they already know that both sides lie and cheat so why are tey so surprised when it occurs. The kids are in the middle and shouldn't be disrespected. They are the ones hurting. And of the person who stated, they still can't read. What does that have to do with anything (ignorant); they are still kids. Maybe not yours but kids just the same!

My family and I were questioned by the police. But it want bad at all the asked if i voted absentee ballot and if I was paid or pressured? They asked if anyone offered money for to vote for one party or the other? Also asked if anyone helped me fill out the ballot? Asked if I sent it in the mail or if someone came and picked it up? When I answered there question they told me the were joint around asking to make sure there was no pressure and nothing illegal was going on

I guess all students would have been better off not voting. Some of you people sound ridiculous. Im a student at Cahokia and we were not bribe nor intimidated to vote. We had students to vote for Republicans as well as democrats.We did have police asking questions but none were answered. So it is very offensive for you people to make the accusations about things you do not have facts about.!
Sincerely,
C.H.S student

I call for the immediate resignation of the School superintendent and the high school principal for permitting a n OPEN AND ARROGANT conflict of interest and voter fraud. The school board should immediately do this or resign themselves.

First of all no student has ever had a drink during this campaigning process...... so stop spreading rumors about things you know nothig about. All that on this sight is speculation. I know wht was going on and it was none of this conspiracy crap said here.... Those children were so proud because they exercised their rights and made what they believe is a difference and thats something you can't take from them

Just a question, couldn't these kids go to vote at the polling place in their district after school? Why did someone have to use gas paid for by the tax payers in school buses? Ok, that was 2 questions.
