As a school board member in District 97 for the last eight years, I know what it takes to be a strong board member. I know that having a deep understanding of education issues is critical. You don't want a school board to be made up entirely of educators but a few with classroom experience and expertise in public education are critical.

For these reasons, I'm endorsing Allison Jack for the River Forest District 90 school board. I've known Allison for over 20 years. She is an energetic, passionate advocate for both equity and excellence in our public school systems.

She started as a classroom teacher and, since leaving the classroom, she has worked in public education locally, at the state level, and nationally for 28 years. Allison has a commitment to equity and ensuring that schools work for every child. She knows curriculum issues, finance issues, and special education issues. She would be an incredible asset to D90 and a great partner for equity efforts in D97 and District 200.

Allison's experience, enthusiasm and commitment set her apart as an outstanding candidate for the D90 school board. She deserves your vote.
