We remain closer to funding reform than ever. No district loses under SB1 and HB2808. Rural, suburban and urban districts need an equitable formula, and under these bills Chicago is treated like other districts.
We continue to urge bicameral, bipartisan support on bills that improve equity, recognize individual student needs, account for local ability to pay, and close gaps between low-income and wealthier students and keep them closed.
Now is the time to pass these bills.
