Memorial Day
For some, summer comes at a small price: Attending a Memorial Day service, with a few moments’ reflection on service and sacrifice, renders the remainder of the summer carefree.

Illinois’ system of funding education is broken. But it is not broken because many school districts, such as School Districts 65 and 202, have been paying high property taxes to fund their schools.

This decision should be made in the context of grading practices in four-year colleges, where 77% of the grades given are As and Bs. We encourage the Board to aim at preparing students to do at least B-level work in college.
