Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRF) is about to dismiss 21 teahcers, according to the official records of the School Board. Among those at risk are multiple language teachers, invaluable history teachers - every single academic department but athletics is on the chopping block. According to the official budget of District 200, OPRF has a budget surplus, making these teacher firings uncalled for. We're calling on the School Board and the Administration of OPRF to repeal the dismissals they voted upon and to support the educational well being of students by reexamining the budget and, if necessary, cutting from elsewhere.
