Schools: Norwood Vs. "Friends Of Norwood"

image from"Norwood Park Principal Joe Kallas recently stood before a room full of
parents and warned that the school needs to raise at least $125,000 by
the fall.But
Kallas didn't mention that the nonprofit charity [Norwood Park School Education Foundation] that had supported the
school since 2005, and to which many parents in the audience had
already donated, still had more than $300,000 in its cash reserves." (Tribune)  What really happened at Norwood, and was the outcome the best that could be expected? Will it affect other schools (and $2.2M in donations citywide) for better or worse?
