ED, home schooling and promoting children ahead of peers

A couple of brothers, ages 10 & 11, will start Proviso Math and Science Academy in the fall. There have been a few news stories about these brothers who were home schooled. See CBS2 (Mia Martinez) and ABC7.

What do you think of home schooling?

What do you think of promoting children ahead of their peers.


  • Funny that the representative to speak about the young students was not an administrator from PMSA, but rather Chris Welch.

  • The Magnet school has been very successful,though you would'nt know it by reading this blog.
    I agree that both East and West are screwed up and a mess, but the Magnet if not polticalcized will prevail and make all Proviso proud!

  • This thread and the comments prove an earlier point I made on this blog. This blog is so politically one sided that it will never gain real credibility. I saw a fantastic story about the whiz kids at the Math and Science Academy on Channel 5, but the administrator did not post a link to their website like he did for channels 2 and 7. Is that because the reporter interviewed the Board President? Also, this is a hoot, what is wrong with a television reporter interviewing the Board President. If it were another person, they would have interviewed that person. Also, if Welch had missed 5 months of meetings, the people on this site would be screaming. But no one is talking about Gary Marine.

    The person that should be interviewed is the building principal, the person who will actually see these young men, not an elected official. If the principal was unavailable, I would have rather seen a district administrator.

  • Chris Welch is a PHOTO HOG! REAPEAT A PHOTO HOG!

    Any where he can get any publicity he is there. He went as far as to stage a bomb threat press conference to get publicity during the state rep. election. Where was the director of communications, Angela McGee? Shouldn't she be doing most of the PR work? I know she has a hard time reading, writing, and speaking, but she does need the practice. Practice makes perfect.

    It is obvious that Welch is posing as the "Observer". Welch stop whinning like a BIATCH! The blog is not politcally one sided, the people in Proviso Township are POLITCALLY AGAINST YOU!

    Welch must've didn't get the message when he lost April.

    So, let's see. You're posting on a blog that you say "will never gain real credibility". Well, that certainly makes the content of your postings more credible, doesn't it? Do you swim in the same pool that you piss in? I'm guessing that you do.
