Follow the money. The Melrose Park / Cicero attorneys control this school board and divert over $ 1,000,000 per year to pay their own legal fees instaed of using it for students. That's why we have ignorant children and higher taxes - a double whammy.

I'm not suprised Mr. Flowers was trying to pass the buck in all this mess. He was apart of it for 3 years, and once again the voters elected the "problem" into a higher position.

Why are proviso teachers making state average in pay when out students are well below state average in test scores? We need to get some commom sense running proviso schools
