A while ago, a commenter asked for more information about schools than whether and how much they increased or decreased taxes since last year.
While data for 2017 is not available, that for 2016 is.
A Friend of McHenry County Blog worked up the information about McHenry County schools that will be posted over the next ten days or so.
Let’s begin with comparative demographic data.
The information below shows the sad correlation between racial minorities and low income.
This is a problem not limited to McHenry County and surely deserves remedial action.

I find it virtually incomprehensible that 99% of those attending Harvard schools are classified as “low income.”
Chicago’s percentage is only 83.1%.
The McHenry County school district with the next highest percentage of low income students is Wonder Lake’s Harrison at 60.%
Marengo’s Grade School district is at 50.1%.
Huntley, Fox River Grove and Prairie Grove have the smallest low income percentages.
WOW ! Harvard is going to need a second Taco Bell.
At least you’re a consistent racist, FedUp. Truly, no one can accuse you of being anything short of a full blown white supremacist.
Why are you using a word made up by Marx to think you are superior, Warren? Full blown triggered?
WOW ! Harvard is going to need a second Taco Bell.
Warren is right on regarding fedup. The others will show up soon to get their feed on.
When one looks at what is the largest factor in student progress, the poverty rates, Harvard has a lot of poverty. Of those living in poverty, a high percentage are white. Silly me to look at these important stats. That being said, the hard numbers( enrollment) are really more telling, as opposed to percentages with such a small district.
But the racists are just too stuck in their little racist world to think very much.
Warren and Tom, our diversity liberals. What percentage of Harvard residents are here illegally and don’t pay taxes to the schools that their children use ? How many get subsidized meals at school ? How many have to be taught English ?
Our sunshine spam scam blog is the perfect outlet and safe space for outright racists to spew their racial hatred on the cyberspace. We celebrate the opportunity these compassionate conservative christians get here to trash immigrants at every opportunity they are given…just like Jesus would do. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww…
To further celebrate the welcoming spirit and embracing of the Latino culture, in the absence of any other famous person born today, our sunshine blog and sunshine commenters would like to honor Ernesto Guevara De La Serna who was born 90 years ago today, on June 14, 1928 in Rosario, Argentina. Happy Birthday Che! Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…
fedup, Do these people live in homes/apartments?
Do I need to further explain your comment/question regarding school funding? If one collects a paycheck, one pays taxes. If some business is not paying taxes then you may have a point.
I don’t think that you can think beyond your ignorance to get that far.
Perhaps if when an illegal immigrant is discovered under this current clown show called the trump Presidency, the companies owners who hired them would be separated from their families and locked up. Maybe a nice tent-city would work too. Perhaps then, this antiAmerican and unChristian behavior that is a crime against humanity might stop.
Wow. Morons aplenty.
They should have to prove citizenship to use the schools or get any benefits. The real clown show was 8 years of Obongo and his husband . Trump is erasing the legacy of OneBigAssMistakeAmerica
Angel’s hero is marxist Che Guevara. He was executed in 1967 like all marxists and communists should be. Meow, meow pussy.
**What percentage of Harvard residents are here illegally and don’t pay taxes to the schools that their children use ?**
I’m going to go out on a limb and say… something close to 0% of Harvard residents are illegally and don’t pay taxes to the schools.
Unless, of course, you don’t think that they pay rent anywhere. Or sales tax on anything they buy. Or that they’re someone how vastly different than the vast majority of undocumented immigrants who also pay income taxes.
But hey… we know that you never let facts get in the way of your ignorant racism.
What’s the illegal percentage?
Dream on fools, your throats will be slit by our invading hordes.
