Do you know what prompted the vacancy?

It was Lisa Clemente who resigned.

  It was not a death. I could not find a resignation letter on the D100 site, but I do not think it was a forced resignation.

Obviously a school board member decided to move or not retain their office. 

Are those the only options? It may not have been the board member's decision. Perhaps there was a forced resignation because of some technical issue. Perhaps there was a forced resignation because of a Berwyn-gonna-Berwyn issue. Perhaps a board member got arrested. Perhaps a board member died. I don't know, which is why I asked.

While senator struggles to get hold of emotions---not respectable Berwyn behavior, I should say---I think it's worth pointing out that private schools do indeed pay less money. But this is really a matter of economic incentives and disincentives, not the "loving to teach" nonsense senator is talking about. (Clearly, senator didn't earn his Master's in economics.)

On the whole, public-school teachers have a tougher job, from more students per classroom to more disciplinary responsibilities, and so forth. Private schools are free to reject the children in situations that require the most help---unfavorable family situations, IEPs, academic struggles---so the teachers there have an easier go of it. Private schools can select out the "problem" students; public schools cannot, excepting expulsion-grade circumstances. If you have a "fuck those kids anyway" attitude, voucher programs and private schools sound super-duper-appealing; if you believe every child deserves an opportunity for a decent education, because that makes for a better society overall, senator's enthusiasm for private schools and resistance to increased public-school funding sounds less super-duper appealing.

That predicament is especially true in communities like Berwyn, where the community has resisted helping schoolchildren for so long that the districts have to pay a higher incentive to keep teachers in their positions. More teachers would reduce the student-teacher ratio and improve the teaching environment, but Berwyn has historically been disinclined to provide that support.
