here's why it should be an issue - secretaries & janitors don't have to have ANY education requirements!! Teachers have a Bachelors degree or higher. So, there are secretaries & janitors getting as much, or more, pay as a teacher with a Masters degree & years of experience - that is crazy!! That is what is wrong in the district. We would be better off to hire outside agencies to clean the buildings, run the offices, maintain the structures, and drive the buses. Some of the higher paid people don't educate in any way - the clean and type!! Call the board members!! Let them know this is ridiculous!!

I could care less about a Bergman - the Brooks and Baxtons have more family & friends employeed by the district than anyone. That's another reason Mr. Baxton doesn't need or deserve to be elected to the board.

teachers aren't the problem - although people like to make them the scapegoats. They went to college to earn their salaries. I just think it's sad to pay a pencil pushing secretary & broom pushing janitor the same as someone with a degree. This is where the district could save some money without causing the students to loose anything.

Well we may complain about the Board Members going to Conventions/Seminars out of town, but atleast they can tell you where they went and what they learned unlike East St Louis. Those people ought to be ashamed of themselves. And the Superintendent is even worse.

Yes he can because they have checked it out with the State School Board. If you are working for a school district and run for the school board and are elected you can keep your position. However, if you dont work for the district, run for election, you CAN NOT get a job with the district.
Also found out that Linda and Yvette, who are not running for re-election are going to spend the districts money and go to the National School Board Convention in San Francisco. Well here goes somemore wasted money. You can bet, since they arent running for re-election they arent going to attend any seminars/sessions. Why waste their time when they can shop or be tourist on the School Districts dime.
Linda is running for trustee in the village election with Gary Cornwell.

Cahokia Resident f--- off you always got something to say about the school board, they are doing the best they can with the mess the economy is in. Have you ever heard of training that money cannot be used for anything else but that so why let it go to waste, if you MF s would come to the school board meetings and hear first hand what is going on maybe you would stop the dam gossiping and lies. Mr. Baxton would have to give his job up if he run for school board, how in the hell can he work for the district and still be on the board where the hell is you people brain get a dam life you bunch of dumb a----. What about in the pass there were real convicted felons around, where were you but holes then now here we go it's ok for some but others it's always a b---- war, since you are a Cahokia Resident run for a school board seat a hole and quit bi------.

Concerned Citizens i agree with you on that. Why don't some of you dam teachers move in the district the janitors earn their money and you can see it we can't see where some of you now I said some of you earn your money, you are taking money out of our district spending it else where so really shut the hell up and quit complaining about someone else salary and earn your own you make enough just because a janitor or secretary don't have a teaching degree does not mean yo a-- have the right to put them down you don't like it go somewhere else and teach, your degree does not make you better than someone that don't have a degree.
