Six members of the College of DuPage board of trustees have failed the students, parents and taxpayers who relied on them and their — is this word too generous? — judgment.
These trustees failed when they forked over more than $750,000 to shove President Robert Breuder out the door in a hush-hush deal that they refused to explain. They decided it was easier to soak taxpayers, who now will foot the bill for the trustees’ mismanagement, than to make their case openly for Breuder’s golden parachute. If, that is, they have a case.
