— The loudest response to Moro and Braley came from others in the audience who cited contradicting school-performance studies and the experience of their own children in the district.

Jeremy Williams said, "My two girls come home with math homework that just blows my wife and me away. My kindergarten daughter is learning 'capacities,'" the math concept of how much something can hold.

Other audience members said Moro and Braley were insulting teachers, most of whom are neighbors. Some asked if the pair believed that faculty and staff were working to hurt students, but neither replied.

After the meeting, Moro said that drastic funding cuts to businesses results in stronger, more innovative companies, and that the same will be true for Johnsburg.

"This isn't a lousy school," Moro said. It just needs to stop spending so much money.
