On Tuesday, I put on my fedora and rode my bike to Logan Square—Hipsterville, U.S.A.—to participate in a panel discussion on an elected school board: pro or con?

Actually, I wasn’t really wearing a fedora and there didn’t seem to be a con in sight.

If the 150 or so people who showed up at the Logan Square Auditorium had their way, they’d implement an elected school board immediately!

And I can understand why. . .
