Percy Julian Middle School hosts a legislative forum Wednesday Oct. 9, featuring state representatives LaShawn Ford and Camille Lilly, and state senators Don Harmon and Kimberly Lightford. The event is scheduled for 7:30-9 p.m. at Julian, 416 S. Ridgeland. The forum is sponsored by Oak Park elementary school District 97.
During Tuesday's D97 board meeting and the public comments section, several parents spoke, upset about the hot classes at the elementary schools. One parent quoted Bob Spatz, the board's president, talking about the central office building in one of my old stories.
