even better $120,000 for a PE teacher that works 190 days.....And I know some teachers don't make that but look it up.I'm not complaining about teachers that work hard for a average salary just the high price ones..I don't care which days are included or not your salary is your salary

Just stop. If you're being sarcastic, you're not very good at it. And if you're being serious, you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

Actually, I think this poster is practically a satirical genius. "No", do you live in Mokena? I do; Sadly, "Mokena Mike" is spot on... Thanks for the laugh, Mike.

Con Serned, you should go live next door to Mokena Mike. He only pays a little more than half as much to his elementary school as you do to 122.

Simple comment here... It is just a shame that because of a guestimate of the district population busting at the seams by 2018 that this even had to happen. The end result is going to be bad and everyone is going to pay for it one way or another. Loss of teachers, schools, taxes going up, loss of jobs, fees going up and the ones who won't suffer are the ones who started it.
