July/August Journal lures summer readers

Summertime is is a great time to catch up on reading. The July/August issue of The Illinois School Boards Journal dives into a variety of education topics, from early childhood to dual credit and from music to mentoring.

With the retirement of longtime General Counsel Melinda Selbee, Kimberly Small takes the lead on IASB’s legal team. Students and the community are hooked on mentoring in stories by Carol Valentino-Barry and Kevin C. Moore from Ridgewood High School in Norridge. This issue’s Practical PR column tackles PERA.

Trace the timeline of the 30-year history of dual credit in Illinois with a piece by Hans Andrews. And the Journal concludes its series on art education with a few lines on music from Darcy Nendza, a school board member and the executive director of the Illinois Music Education Association.
