Outside the Horseshoe http://peoriapublicradio.org en Outside The Horseshoe - March 25, 2014 http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/outside-horseshoe-march-25-2014 <p>A group of parents and interested citizens has launched a public movement called Change 150. The campaign is against the Peoria District 150 Superintendent and Board of Education. It resulted in ouster of the only school board member up for re-election last week. Yesterday one of the city’s most prominent African American Pastors stood in front of the reporters from all media outlets in the city to say the group was misguided and function largely on a racial bias.
