    "One thing to keep in mind is that most people who post on these sites are employees. It is an honor system. You can click on whatever you want at the end."

    "McPherson is definitely full of caring administrators and staff who strive to make a positive difference and do their best every day. I agree with the last reviewer about being suspicious about an author's intentions and purpose in regards to to an unfair, untrue and attacking anonymous post. It is unfortunate that some people are just plain miserable and mean and need to blame others for their "frustration" in life."

    "No SPED class room at McPherson has 33 kids. The maximum is 13 and includes at least one teacher and several aids,most classes are below this. Under Illinois rules, students with mild disabilities who spend less than 20 percent of their time in special ed must be in pull-out classes with 15 or fewer students (or 17 with a paraprofessional), while those with more severe disabilities who receive special education classes at least 60 percent of the time must be in classes with no more than eight students (13 with a paraprofessional). In preschool, special education classes are limited to five students, or 10 with a paraprofessional. There was an attempt to change this last year but was successfully fought by CTU, parents (I testified) and others. Mr. Chico the chairman of the State Board got the matter dropped for which he should be thanked. Please get your facts straight. If you need/want an explanation further, contact the principal or the case manager for McPherson. Either will gladly clarify the issue for you and explain the CPS Guidelines for Special Education Programs""

    "My daughter started Kindergarten this year at Mcpherson. We were a little nervous, because this (our neighborhood school) is not rated very high. But we are so happy that we made this choice. Our daughter loves this school, her teacher is a wonderful person. She is caring, motivating and extremely committed to her work. I see wonderful things happening at this school. This is a great school wish only needs more people out of the neighborhood to join!"

    "I find it horrible that in a SPED class from grades 3 -5 that I licensed teacher has to service 33 students! The kiddos are expected to pass the state testing standards and how can that happen when the teacher is overloaded with students. The teacher is trying her best and has high standards for her students. Unfortunately, I have heard she is looking for another position because of the poor working conditions. Doesn't CPS have a limit on how many students a SPED class should contain? If not, there should be! I would have for the school to lose such a valuable teacher. Please for the good of the kiddos and the teacher, please give the overworked teacher some support!"
