  • Who cares about Highland Park banning the girls team from traveling to Arizona. It's a political statement and has nothing to do with education. At least they still have a sports team.

    16 aarrested at Bogan HS??? Wow!! Let's get the parent patrol on this immediately. That is, the one's who are no involved with the gangs already. I'm familiar with that neighborhood, unfortunately it's a lost cause. That type of stuff happens all the time at Bogan, it's only reported when the media has a dry day.

    The previous suburban Cook County superintendent has resigned over allegations he misused funds?? Come on, not in Illinois. Let's hope he takes responsibility for his actions and not walk onto the Metra train tracks. Those complaining about having more work should check out the lastest issue CPS Daily News......oops I mean Chicago Tribune.

  • Wow!!! Let's see, wild party vs Gang violence. The two don't even compare. Yes, a few of the parents in the Bogan neighborhood are hard working, but just like on the west side, drive down Exchange Ave or Commercial Ave at 10 in the morning and you'll see all kinds of low-lifes hanging out, standing around with white tee's. The neighborhood is a lost cause because of the CONTINUED violence and gang activity. And who are the parents of these gang members???? The same home owners who close their mouths and don't say a word.

  • Sick and tired

    Are you for real? Those streets are in the BOWEN area not the BOGAN area.

  • In reply to rbusch:

    You're absolutely right. I was thinking about Bowen. Either way, both schools are horrible and should be closed.

  • Not a problem. That just might get a better education. Thank goodness not all CPS employees have to live in the city.......lol

  • LOL!!!!! And thank you too. LOL!!!
