School boards want a reprieve from state FOIA
As a journalist, I have filed thousands of Freedom of Information Act requests with Illinois school districts and uncovered major personnel problems and cases of criminals teaching.
So please forgive me if I’m a bit touchy when I hear school districts want to make it more difficult for the public to hold them accountable – or even know what they are up to.
But that is exactly what would happen under a resolution from the Illinois Association of School Boards to change Illinois open records laws.
