The formula for a teacher pension in Illinois is 75% of your last 4 years of employment. That meansRead More Wyllie averaged $388,481 over his last 4 years of employment. Does anyone remember LW posting those salaries?

Mike, this is Mokenaland where the residents don’t give a ---- about anything other thanRead More themselves. Just look at this thread. Should have hundreds of pissed off people commenting by now, but they don’t care. Even worse a third of comments here actually defend this robbery. This is organized crime. Anyone who defends this has obviously never worked a day in their life and consequentially has no idea what the working class needs to do to survive. In answer to your question, no, I don’t remember seeing his salary posted. However one should remember that the total amount is shielded or compartmentalized so obscure the bottom line. By design of course. After the annual 3% COLA next year the pension will be north of 300K. Don’t forget they are required to subsidize their lifetime healthcare to the tune of 100$/month. That’s one hundred dollars per month. Can we put you down for the 10,000$ donation?

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

I don't think magnet schools should be included. All the other schools have to take all students inRead More their district, magnet schools can pick and choose best students.

"Virtual walls"? Geezus... GPS spoofing is but one way around the geofence. The otherRead More is simply walking up to someone and saying "HEY *(&*(^^#&*(Y($*() !!!!!"

@Donny.....that referendum passed.... Barely!! Yes I do remember it...I voted No and so did a lot ofRead More other taxpayers. I also remember after it was voted in hearing a lot of "Are you kidding me!!" I also remember a referendum to see if taxpayers would approve a $60 million building bond to have astro-turf at East and Central's football fields. I voted No and so did a lot of other taxpayers and that referendum failed. Wait....no it didn't because the school board didn't listen to the taxpayers and the astro-turf was installed anyway. Oh but wait we are talking about LW football...can't make cuts in that department. Football generates a lot of money for the schools I get that, but NOT every student plays sports! Building two new schools was a huge mistake....this is my opinion. No one knew the economy was going to turn out the way it did, but my wallet and my non-existent equity in my home didn't either. Making cuts in the Arts is a huge mistake, but the kids shouldn't have to be punished for something no one could control. The board approves too much take it out on them not the kids. My son graduated from East in 2009 and is doing well and had a great HS career not only because he went to a LW school, but because he had good teachers.... Very good teachers. Instead of cutting the teachers, cut from the top. LW is too top heavy. Start there. My opinion.

A lot of really good posts here. Sounds like some people have the inside track on some facts andRead More some others don't want to hear what's going on. Nothing new here folks, 210 has been a good old boys club since we moved here almost thirty years ago. Don't bother running for a school board seat. If I recall, the last person elected that was not an incumbent was at least ten years ago...maybe more. They retire before their term is up and the board approves the replacement. The replacement then runs as an incumbent and you know what that means. Been going on for years. Not going to change. As for the fine arts center, if in fact the IPO is not being charged, that needs to be investigated. Just because they let our students into a concert for free, doesn't cut it.

Those with the inside track should contact one of the investigative reporters from the local newsRead More stations!
