Illinois State Board Of Education Wants More Money

The Illinois State Board of Education is asking for an increase in funding by $874 million next year.

But an increase in funding for education is unlikely.

Illinois is in the middle of a massive budget crisis.

Gov. Pat Quinn's office estimates school funding would be cut by $400 million in the next fiscal year.

Experts say that 67 percent of school districts are in the red now.

More than 6,400 teachers have been laid off and class sizes have grown in recent years as school funding has been cut.
