  1. ETHS comic book curriculum is a joke on us

    The Evanston District 202 School Board is about to pass a new curriculum where students can read comic book adaptations of Shakespeare, Homer and other classc writers.

    That’s right. ETHS students can earn credit reading comic books on Romeo and Juliet, The Old Man and the Sea, Grapes of Wrath, The Great Gatsby, Wuthering Heights, Homer, Animal Farm (how ironic) and so on.

    I’m sure the Ivy League schools will be very impressed.

    Not only that, but ETHS has loosened advanced class requirements, opening them up to more mediocre students. Whatever happened to competition, prestige and honor for working hard to be among the best? 

    ETHS is watering down education and making it a mockery with a comic book curriculum on literary classics. And taxpayers pay $20,000 for each ETHS student. 

    Please, please someone with common sense run for the District 202 school board.
