Interesting post Elaine.
On a similar note, watch for some interesting news
coming out from Dist. 150
this Friday.

Dist. 150 has sent an official release to media on this, so I guess I can post it now, too.
"Remarkable Times" coming to Comcast Cable 22 starting Sunday, Jan. 23rd 5 pm on CAPtions. This new reoccuring segment includes:
Mr. Ptacek talks about the IB program; Dr. Sharon Kherat updates viewers on Manual activites, as does Randy Simmons on PHS.
Host of this 30 minute segment:
Dr. Grenita Lathan, Superintendent of Dist. 150. Various video clips of classrooms are also broadcast.

The rest of CAPtions features host Andre Bohannon & Engin Blackstone of the Quest Charter Academy.

This is propaganda, not news.

Will it replace live broadcasts of the board meetings?

I can't say if it will; I hope they do resume live broadcasts of the BOE, though.
Here is a link to a sample of "Remarkable Times" on

  • From the News Release
    PeoriaStory will tell the stories that likely won’t be told by the mainstream/corporate media. It will question local political candidates for their views on controversial topics. It will cover and profile off-beat movements and people. It will take stands on issues such as the Kellar trail. It will also serve as a forum for liberal and progressive events, and welcomes news releases from groups working for the public good. PeoriaStory will be a fresh, new voice for the Peoria area blogosphere, and offer a liberal and progressive perspective for our times.
