More on District 87

By: Diane Benjamin

The below proves District 87 should concentrate on education instead of social justice. Schools prepare kids to be adults, if they fail the kids have a limited future.

There is limited data available for how the kids did academically last year because District 87 (and many others) decided not to participate in testing. A small amount of data is available here: https://www.illinoisreportcard.com/District.aspx?source=trends&Districtid=17064087025

Have you heard STEM education is vital? Not at District 87 evidently, the dark green line is the state percent:

This graph below is from 2018, failure to teach math has nothing to do with COVID. It shows the percentage who attend a Community College after graduation and have to be taught what high school failed to teach them. Keep in mind this is ONLY the kids who went on to Community College: https://www.illinoisreportcard.com/district.aspx?districtid=17064087025&source=trends&source2=postsecondaryremediation

Are you running for School Board in 2023? The social justice warriors elected now are not demanding education. You should!

  1. A friend of mine worked at Heartland in the Math department. She showed me the math schedule. I was shocked at the number of remedial math classes they offered. I figured if you had been out of school a while you might need a refreshers course. But she told me it was mostly those who had just graduated high school.

    I taught HS business over 20 years ago. I have thought about going back into teaching. But as a conservative, I don’t know if I could survive. I would be fired within a week.

  2. And then lets throw in the new pedagogy of equity and race based CRT education that says math is a false white race construct. But not only that, correctness (even in math) should be evaluated on the basis of your race and lived experience.

    I hope their lived experience will keep the bridges they/them/us designed from collapsing!

  3. Prediction : the next Bloomington School Board election is gonna be HEAVY on the things that are done to and for candidates ‘ in the arena’ , just sayin’ – better get your RhinoHyde w Armour skin on if you happen to be an incumbent because there is a REAL chance feelings are gonna get hurt and ego’s damaged.
