Why doesn’t the Wednesday Journal have someone covering the education beat? Most of our tax dollars go to pay for schools in Oak Park and River Forest, but there is only a rare article on what is going on, pedagogically, in the schools. I want to hear what the children in our community are learning, and how they are succeeding, or not. I want you to make us informed taxpayers when it comes time to vote. I am sure you could have at least one article per week. This would still be many pages less than you devote to school sports.
