School Funding In Illinois Not An Easy Problem To Solve

Illinois lawmakers are at odds over school funding and a new report won’t end the fighting. 

Last month Republicans issued a report stating Chicago schools get more state money than they should. Democrats say that isn’t so and that Chicago schools sometimes don't get as much state aid as they need because the money goes for downstate schools. Some democrats want downstate school districts to pay more for their teachers' retirements. 

Critics say it will be too much for them to handle. 

If something doesn’t change, school districts across the state will face $400-million in cuts next year.
