CAHOKIA Parents are outraged about cuts District 187 administrators are proposing to make as a result of the state's funding shortfall.

Cahokia Schools to cut Music programs

Superintendent Art Ryan said the district may have to layoff teachers, eliminate all extracurricular activities including high school sports, cut art, music and physical education classes at the elementary schools, close Jerome Early Childhood Center and the high school portion of the Cahokia School of Choice and consolidate students.

Great idea. Long Island schools should make all music,art and sports pay to play or paint by the parents of the child. No more free breakfasts or lunches.No more one on one paras for punk kids who need their asses whopped. No more pta funded assemblies on bullying,social acceptance etc. No more SmartBoards or classroom computers either. Kids are dumber now and we need to go back to chalk and slate.No more parents allowed in schools during day either -Stay The Fugg Out and let the teachers teach!

It's not the parents you need to keep out,,it's the special interest groups and our state administrators with the state mandated tests the kids are taught to pass instead of teaching how to learn......
Anyways the schools have a bunch of medicated brainwashed children,taking pills for the made up ADHD diagnosis that suits who?who all march to the same tune...a generation of .robots
Throw the school pschologists out of the schools and get the kids outside,and run them ,like we did in the old days....instead of pushing the pills/experimental drugs on children...
while long Island schools need to be centralization to limit the amount of dust collecting administrators,greedy double dipping superintendents and their cohorts...
