Employees Being Pressured To Donate To Board Members' Campaign In Bellwood SD88!!!
Sources tell the Proviso Insider weblog that employees in Bellwood SD88 are being pressured to donate to incumbent board member Marilyn Thurman's campaign for re-election. Sources say supporters of board member Thurman are strong arming principals to purchase at least one ticket to an upcoming event, and at least one principal is about to fight back with a lawsuit in court. Thurman, a 16 year board member in the district, is primarily responsible for the district's slide in recent years. More kids have gone on to high school reading at 3rd, 4th and 5th grade level than in school history. Is it time to put Education over politics and dump Thurman?
