BREAKING Peoria District 150 news....

Now with the newly elected District 150 members in place they have the necessary votes to terminate their "beleaguered" Superintendant and have met with her - allowing her the option to resign.
Grenita Lathan resigned last night.

This is clearly a simple example of where the voters of District 150 have spoken. They were tired & fed up with the politics of unelected people (Lathan Bateman) ruining their school district and driving it into tremendous, record debt.
Thus they did the only thing possible, they elected new members to the board to make the necessary changes.
Thus Lathan quit rather than allow the Board to meet and fire her.
This is exactly how it should be and yet the PJStar makes no attempt to hide their sentiment in the four different columns on this subject over the past 24 hours, especially Phil Luciano and Pam Adams (who even interestingly invokes the name of Joanne Glasser).

wow - that was incredibly fast - in just a matter of days the old District 150 chief was run out and sent packing by the board (and by the voters who duly elected the board members to make this change)
and now they have a new chief in place...

http://www.pjstar.com/article/201507...9619/1994/NEWS

this is one of the two fastest and most incredible, sweeping housecleanings I have ever seen for the sake of saving a storied educational institution ..
it really seems to pain the PJS writer to cite that it was a UNANIMOUS vote by the District 150 Board to approve the new Superintendant Sharon Desmoulin-Kherat, and that the new chief is and was an ardent opponent of the former Superintendant.

Article in today's paper....
really discouraging about District 150 academics...
http://www.pjstar.com/article/20151211/NEWS/151219877

"Test Scores Fall..."
..then goes on to detail how really terrible District 150 standardized test scores are.

"Only 16 percent of students (in District 150) met or exceeded standards..."
...on standardized testing to determine "Readiness for College and Career"

..and as an interesting 2nd part to this story...
"Peoria School District 150's testing and research expert, Diana Zaleski, quit Thursday.."

By comparison, the article points out that..
"Fifty-seven percent of Dunlap students met or exceeded" the same standards..

..eight District 150 grade schools fell in the single-digit range, Manual HS was at 5%, and Central was at 2%, Trewyn at 1%!! Seriously - that's 2% & 1% of their students met or exceeded the "standards" to be considered ready or on track for college or career. OMG.


Parents be warned...this is the legacy of the government telling you how to educate your kids and the legacy of Common Core.

That's the key word in all of this - PARENTS. If there were stable family units in place for these kids then I'm guessing you'd be seeing statistics comparable to Dunlap. Divorce and out of marriage wedlock have been, and will continue to be, the downfall of America.

Certainly do agree- if a parent places their kids into a lousy school district to be taught by lousy teachers, then the majority of the blame still falls on the parents.
But the breakdown of the families, which is and was the inevitable result of the 1960's thru 1980's movement of me-first, whatever goes, if it feels good - do it, and the explosion of kids born out of wedlock or with no parental involvement & get all semblance of religion & morality out of the schools has resulted in a mass of people who depend on the government to take care of them and do the job of raising their kids for them. Lives ruined, more government dependency and then each successive generation gets even worse as government resources get ever thinner and more permissive.
If that's what people want then they cannot gripe when the government (the "Village" as HC calls it) does a horrendous job of it.

Who says its what the people want? The majority certainly doesn't want it. You say "lousy teachers" get part of the blame? I don't think so. The blame goes on mom and whoever the dad is. If you can't afford I kid, don't have 9. Oh that's right, someone else will pay for em. And the Urnal Star will have another story around this time of year of the poor 24 year old mother of 5, the youngest being 4 years old, who needs help.

I would think that would be a very good hire.

http://www.pjstar.com/news/20160730/...public-schools

once again - this past year has been an amazing year in Peoria's District 150...

November 1, the results of statewide testing proved that again Peoria's District 150 showed MARKED improvements...

here are just a few excerpts:

"Superintendent Dr. Sharon Desmoulin-Kherat credits community support for the improved performance of Peoria Public Schools,
as reported by the 2017 Illinois District Report Card released Wednesday, November 1.
Every grade level showed increases along with 15 schools in the District,
resulting in a 1 percent overall gain for the Districtís 3rd- through 8th-grade students participating in the annual PARCC assessment.

The 2017 Illinois District Report card for Peoria Public Schools is available at: https://www.peoriapublicschools.org/Page/9."
