Fifth grader Hubert Radzik finds a nook under his classmates hanging schoolbags as he writes in his notebook during #class inside a portable due to overcrowding conditions at Lincoln Elementary School in Palatine, Friday, Oct. 7, 2016. The large suburban #school district will ask voters for permission to borrow $130 million to build two new schools — by far the costliest such referendum in the state on the November ballot — and the outcome will determine much more than the district’s financial future. The divisive request touches on a wide range of controversies, from school boundaries to busing to #minority integration. Supporters say students need modern facilities, full-day kindergarten, less crowding, less busing and intensive services for English learners. Opponents warn the plan is rushed and expensive, and would segregate #Hispanic students. Read the story at http://trib.in/2dJpmiX | Photo by Antonio Perez
