rm- this is not what I needed to hear a week from Xmas break, right after I was denied a request to use my personal days for a Grand trip in April, right about the time of year when the kids are crazy, administrators are uptight, and I feel like nothing I do makes a difference anyway.
As far as Illinois politics, I admit that I lean toward the naive side- but, as a teacher, I do believe in progress (if not change) and I have to hope for the best. It is disheartening to see the reality that all politicians are corrupt to some degree.
