I’ve read a lot a lot about Anthony Clark lately in Wednesday Journal, the Oak Leaves, and the Chicago Sun-Times but not one word regarding his teaching at Oak Park and River Forest High School (a subject that would interest me). If his main reading is something called “social media,” shouldn’t the “Freedom of the Press” group be concentrating more on the public interest? The OPRF school board is not the only board often wanting more money from us, and racism doesn’t seem to be the central feature of this story. Permitting distraction to overcome concentration is closer and isn’t appealing in either schools or newspapers.
