And yet again citizens have decided that homeschooling parents can be the best school board representatives. Two homeschooling fathers in Illinois were recently elected to their respective boards.
Homeschool Dad and McHenry County Republican precinct committeeman John Ryan of Algonquin knocked off the Carpentersville District 300 School Board President Mary Fioretti. And up Route 31 in McHenry, Republican precinct committeeman John O’Neill, also from a homeschooling family, won enough votes to capture the third seat on that town’s grade school district. Both candidates were attacked for not having their children in the public school system in whispering campaigns. Illinois ReviewI know about those whispering campaigns. I'm glad, this time, it failed.
