A pleasant change

The school board elected not to expel the eleven lacrosse players at Glenbrook South. It's not what I expected. I'll still be skeptical of them, but with this decision, maybe there's some hope for those people yet. Former board member Art Wulf's comments in the public session of Sunday's meeting are telling:

"What you're establishing here is a very dangerous precedent. You started this last year with the situation of the Powder Puffs up north," said Art Wulf, a former School Board member from Northbrook. "You've intruded into the households, the homes of people, the basements of people. The next thing probably is the bedroom of people."

That was exactly my fear last May, that the board would try to stick its nose into every aspect of students' lives. What busybody's whim would become the next suspendable offense? It's a little reassuring to know I'm not the only one with a clue, and the opinion of at least one of the rest carries weight with the people in charge.
