Principal White only mistake was expecting children to be respectful and responsible.  This is at odds with a board obsessed with race as an excuse for bad behavior.  As far as looking at for the "stakeholders" how about holding landlords of single family homes responsible for paying their fair share?  These homes used to send on average 2 o3 3 kids to school - now one single family home sends 4 to 8 kids - free lunch, waived schools fees and often receiving special ed services - the property tax this landlord pays does not compensate the real "stakeholders" of the district.  If a single family home is a rental - after the enrollment past the typical enrollment of a homeowner - the landlord should get the bill the district spends on average for each student.  Come on homeowners!  As long as Illinois chooses to fund schools through property taxes this is not unconstitutional or illegal.  We don't care who they are - just how many are enrolled.  How in the world can our schools have breakfast programs - which are only required when 40% or more kids are "low income"?  Our village officials need to get off their duffs and make Bolingbrook a middle class community again.  this is not a race issue - this is a don't get married so you can free load off the middle class issue.
