Phelan: D-304 teachers work hard; students do, too
On Monday, I attended a Geneva School District 304 board meeting that was called to address the possible teacher strike in Geneva.
While I saw plenty of teachers out in their green shirts and plenty of vocal community members, I saw very few students. That surprised me. After all, school is about the students. I decided to overlook my depressing count of just five students and pay attention to the mud being slung.
What shocked me most about the meeting was the fact that I didn’t hear any educators speak. When I privately asked a teacher about this, she responded that people had been speaking for weeks to no avail. Slightly miffed, I continued listening.
