Fulough or no furlough District 209 will produce some of the state of Illinois' lowest test scores. So teachers, please start earning your raises soon. Thank you.

District 209 ranks near the bottom in Illinois in terms of academic performance. Looks bleak. Too bad. When I went to PW ages ago it was not a bad place.
