The results of our poll are in, and here's how Patch users feel about the perks former superintendent Dr. Harry Griffith received.
Last week, the Chicago Tribune published an article on the questionable spending practices of the Lake Forest District 67 and District 115 Boards of Education during Dr. Harry Griffith's time as superintendent - including loan forgiveness on his house and travel expenses.
