newspapers cover ad hoc group, aka the D209 grumblers

Because the Proviso Probe audience can never get enough of Proviso Township High Schools (District 209)....

Last Wednesday there was a meeting of District 209 grumblers.

Now you can read and discuss coverage by the weeklies.

Forest Park Review (Josh Adams):
A cross-section of township residents bent on pressuring federal, state and local officials to wipe out the corruption they say plagues the public high schools have begun laying the groundwork for a grassroots movement.

But for all the steam carried into the group's first meeting, held last week on the heels of Superintendent Stan Fields' July 30 suspension, a question exists whether the range of political and socio-economic backgrounds will be a hindrance or a help.

Proviso Herald (Chuck Fieldman):
Unhappy with the goings-on of the Proviso High School District 209 Board, approximately 30 residents of the district have banded together with plans to question and voice concerns to the Board.

A first meeting of those residents took place Aug. 8 at the Forest Park Public Library. The meeting was organized by Forest Park resident Bill Kirchner, who has been a member of both a citizens' advisory group initiated by suspended Superintendent Stan Fields and of the PTSA at Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy.
