How does broke Illinois give dysfunctional East St. Louis School District 189 a $10 million grant? If the school district can get an extra $10 million, it should refund $10 million to the taxpayers by reducing the highest property tax rate in Illinois.
District 189 leaders are not leaders, they are leeches including Milton Wharton and the oversight panel, who are Uncle Toms for state Superintendent of Schools Chris Koch.
My taxes have ballooned from $2,100 to more than $4,450 in 12 years. The district should be closed and people like board President Lonzo Greenwood should be in jail.
