Getting back to Dist 142, I was at Family fun night on Friday and if you could have seen how some of the Mothers were "fawning and gloating" over the Hille Principal to score Brownie Points, was pure sickening,

I have two kids, grads of 228 and yes that is what it costs for a diploma from an out of state University.

$40k a year with living expenses.

Hopefully their earning potential is great enough to cover this! But what's the alternative? They could Work at a conveince store or car wash

It is a case of poor interviewing skills. Her future plans and commitment level should have been discussed before she was hired 5281

What difference does it make? The new Superintendent will slip in without skipping a beat. She is only the boss, the job is actually done by the people under her. Executives like her are always trying to better themselves, and probably 80% of them are always looking for a new job, same as City Administrators and other political jobs. This happens in private sector also.

You should watch whatb you say about Conveince store people or store people in general. The retail industry pays a lot more than what you think and people do move quickly up. I don't think a midlevel Manager at $80.000 a year is too shabby. Hey, someone has to put out the beer you buy.

The number of kids that attend college after graduating from 228 is probably less than 30 %. for the first year and less than 5% for the second year of college. The admin does not post these dismal stats. They let the kids use their phones because they can't control their own students, they gave up.

I will be called racist for this comment but it's a factual statement.
Go to the above link. It will show the race that is why there's a low college rate. Plus there's 3 high schools Bremen, oak forest & tinkey park.

Wow! Maybe that's why she left because of parents like you, white trash. I'm a taxpayer too but let's think realistically the world is all for one screw everyone else. It's business. There's no more loyal employees anymore. The board and taxpayers learn the hard way. Next super put some clauses in the contract. But stop the name calling you lower yourself.

Appreciate the link. District 228 consists of four high schools. The college readiness numbers show 32 percent. The 80 percent that shows kids enrolled in college is bogus. Its simply does not reflect reality. I'm not sure where they got that number I believe it's probably a survey of students that would like to go to college . College prep books will tell you kids returning to the second year of college is a critical stat.

District 228 charge is to educate all the kids in all four schools. The district receives a whole lot of money in title1 funds to help get this done. I think they're playing fast and loose with title1 funds.

This looks like a very good example of a school board selecting a quality candidate. Maybe they can elaborate on why the other administrators were let go.

Mess as far as how? My child seemed to enjoy it and didn't really have a problem except for an ocassional bully which 142 never did have a handle on. Mr.Adelman seemed like he had it together though. I was just told he won't be returning and wondered if that was true and if so, why not.
