The two home school Dads,
John O’Neil and John Ryan,
were featured on the front page of the Northwest Herald in a story by David Fitzgerald
The two have recently been elected to their local school boards–O’Neill to McHenry Grade School District 15 and Ryan to Carpentersville Unit School District 300.
If having a child in a public school were a prerequisite to service on a school board, only a minority of people would be eligible to serve on school boards.
The argument is so flaky.
As if someone without kids in the Huntley School system couldn’t look at the ACT scores and figure out that there was a problem.
As if someone seeing his tax bills increase as much as they did in Carpentersville District 300 could not be outraged enough to want to improve things.
A third McHenry County home school dad, David Etling, lost his bid to be elected to the Prairie Grove Elementary School Board.
