Two Homeschoolers Win School Board Posts

Steve Rooney

John O'Neill

That happened four years ago, too, when homeschoolers John O’Neill was elected to the McHenry Grade School Board and John Ryan won a District 300 seat.

This year, O’Neill was re-elected without opposition and Steve Rooney won a seat on the Johnsburg Unit School District 12 Board of Education.

John Ryan has moved out of Illinois and the woman appointed to replace him on the District 300 Board, Karen Plaza, the wife of Lake in the Hills Village President Ed Plaza, failed to win election to retain her seat.

  1. I think its great that Home Schoolers are winning Board seats. This perspective can provide a balanced view of Education. With Homeschooling growing by 25% each year Its an important part of the community.
