Oak Park is fortunate to have Kathy Tortorice as a candidate for the District 97 school board. District 97 needs to figure out what's working in some of its schools and then encourage all of its schools to do the same. Kathy's training and experience as a pharmacist have prepared her to evaluate claims of efficacy about drugs. She will hold the district to similarly high standards of evidence in evaluating the efficacy of its programs. Kathy is proof against educational nostrums.
