I am extending my whole-hearted support to Jackie Moore, outstanding candidate for the District 200 school board. Jackie is ideally qualified for this position. She has a doctorate in developmental studies and has been an active volunteer at every level of the Oak Park schools for many years. Most recently, she served as board member of Oak Park's Collaboration for Early Childhood.
As a parent, she has guided two of her children through the high school, and has two more who will be attending. Over the years, I have been most struck by her passion for the importance of a robust education for all children. She brings an understanding of children's needs from many perspectives, with her background as a researcher, community participant and parent. I urge everyone to vote for Jackie Moore — we could not have a better candidate for D200.
