To the Editor:
Wow! Great article by Jeff Engelhardt in Friday’s Northwest Herald (Sept. 20) about the “teenage executives” economics class at Crystal Lake South High School. It was truly refreshing to read about Jim Krol’s stimulating second-period class and his enthusiastic students. It’s a practical class that has promise for the students and our community.
At a time when teachers are being blamed by the diverse media for the financial difficulties of our state, it is great to hear about our local, bright and innovative teachers.
