I've had the great fortune to serve as president of the River Forest District 90 school board for the last four years, with some of the brightest, most dedicated people I've ever had the honor to know. Three of them, Rich Moore, Barb Hickey and Cal Davis are running for re-election. I urge everyone who cares about having excellent schools in our community to support each of them.
To be clear: By excellent schools I mean schools that provide every student, from the most gifted to the most challenged, irrespective of race, gender or ethnicity, the type of learning environment and rigorous curriculum needed to thrive academically.
During their time on the board, Rich, Barb and Cal have each made invaluable contributions to serving the students who walk through the district's doors. Unfortunately, word limitations prevent listing all they bring to the table. However, our community should know that: Rich has an exhaustive knowledge of educational best practices; Barb ensures all district initiatives include the crucial element of accountability; and Cal remains focused like a laser on having a cost/benefit analysis for every proposal.
While they certainly don't agree on everything, they share one thing: an unshakeable commitment to ensuring D90 schools remain numbered among the best in Illinois — and capable of serving every student's needs.
