A Divided Highland Park Set To Vote On Massive School Consolidation Plan

Residents of Highland Park, Highwood and Fort Sheridan are gearing up to vote on a school referendum that has pitted neighbor against neighbor in a fight over the future of their school district. 

Taxpayers are split on whether North Shore District 112 should issue $198 million dollars in bonds to upgrade some schools and build a state-of-the-art middle school campus. 

Daniel Weil from the group Moving 112 Forward and Jeff Hamburg from Citizens Against the 112 Referendum joined us to lay out their cases.
