Gordon: Climbing the 21st century mountain
In the month that I’ve been in Glen Ellyn School District 41, people have asked me how things compare with my old district and why I wanted to come here from the Denver area.
It’s easy to come up with comparisons between the two districts and the two regions. My old district, Adams 12, has 43,000 students in 50-some schools from preschool to high school. Pockets of that district are similar to District 41; pockets are very different.
Summer in Colorado is bone dry. Summer in Illinois seems pretty rainy. One difference I notice every day as I learn my way is that in Colorado, I could just cast an eye to the nearby mountains to learn my direction. In Illinois, it’s not so easy.
