On March 15, the Daily Herald published an article where the school board members and candidates pledged their tremendous commitment to improving communication.

A lawsuit has been filed against the District and it seems to have a reasonably firm foundation. The union has called for the District to pull out of its contract with the Illinois Energy Consortium. The Daily Herald editorial board appears to have asked at least one candidate for the District 211 school board if she was in favor of firing Superintendent Roger Thornton.

On March 28, I wrote an email to each of the school board members asking these questions. There’s nothing special about me (I’m just someone with a keyboard) but I am reasonably sure that these are questions that concerned citizens of every kind in District 211 think deserve an answer.

And yet, we hear nothing.
