Readers know that I was a teacher in Park Ridge District 64 for many years. I was the local union president for about a decade.
Union and school board members had their battles. But for the most part, board members were civil.
Man. Things have changed.
One of the District 64 board members, elected four years ago, is Dr. Dathan Paterno. Believe it or not, he advises parents as a child psychologist.
Paterno loves to Tweet his right-wing, mysogynistic, racist political and professional views. Usually his Tweets make Donald Trump’s Tweets look progressive.
In Chicago, we are not allowed to elect our school board.
The bad thing about elected school boards is you can end up with Dr. Paterno.
The good thing is that you can vote them out.
The election is scheduled for April 4th.
If you try to find Paterno’s Twitter account today, he has removed it.
Apparently the screeching vaginas Tweet is causing a stir in town.
It’s about time.
And if you don’t want to wait, there’s a board meeting tonight.
Or you can call the District 64 phone number at 847 318 4300 and leave Dr. Paterno a message.
