The student newspaper at Oak Park and River Forest High School has made its endorsements for high school board trustees for the April 9 election.
The Trapeze has endorsed candidates Steve Gevinson, Jeff Weissglass, Julie MacCarthy and Jackie Moore for the four open seats on the District 200 Board of Education. The endorsements were made in the paper's March 22 edition.
Of Gevinson, the Trapeze noted his "lengthy experience as a teacher and administrator at OPRF," and his advocacy for the arts in its endorsement. The paper noted Weissglass' "balanced knowledge of money and management," among his qualities suited for the board. MacCarthy's background working with mixed-income students in the Chicago Public Schools was a plus to the Trapeze. Of Moore, the paper agreed with her stance on resolving the achievement gap by "creating higher expectations for lower achieving students."
