Considering I recently toured the Lincoln museum and tomb in Springfield I'm going to have to tryRead More this. Jeez, and to think when I was her age I thought making ramen noodles was good eating.

Because we need more state control of local schools?

This is ridiculous. Go to bed earlier. 6:30 a.m. is not the middle of the night. Get up. Teens willRead More just stay up later - they'll sleep past noon if given a chance.

Parents need to step up and regulate bed time. Most kids stay up way too late, are playing videoRead More games, using social media, tablets, smart phones, etc. This all makes it harder for the child to fall asleep at a decent time to get the a good amount of sleep. Kids would stay up all night if given the chance. Then they get up and have a sluggish start to their day. Doctor, I get your point, but it all begins at home and the parents need to be there to parent. Its not the school's fault.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Matt you are correct that three was no need to mention PHS in that manor. But to me the mostRead More disturbing aspect of the article is that FHS and PHS were both out performed by a number of area D214 schools that FHS people maintain provide lesser educations.

They are both good "schools" considering that they are run by overpaid administrators,Read More overpaid teachers and force the politically correct agenda of diversity and non-critical thinking upon our children! other than that I am pretty satisfied. case in point, The "journalist" of this story is most likely a product of a FHS education!

D-211 has a total revenue number of $285 million. They have 12,400 students. This means that theRead More cost of a high school education in Schaumburg, Palatine & Hoffman Estates per student is nearly $100 grand. If you feel that the cost of a high school education in D-211 is to high please call the Districts open line 847-755-6600 and leave a message for the entire D-211 Board of Education. Let them know exactly how you feel.

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.
