A Black History Month project on “African animals” assigned to kindergarteners at Sutherland Elementary outraged parents, and turbulence continues at Lincoln Park High School, where yet another staff member was removed this week, this time over an “altercation with a student.”
Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan didn’t have a great week, either. He and several of his closest political allies were named in a new federal subpoena seeking records on a former ComEd lobbyist and his consulting work for a tiny southwestern suburb.
