Changes To Education Funding On Their Way.

A group of downstate Illinois Superintendents headed to Springfield yesterday to show their support for potential change in how the state funds school districts. 

The crux of the matter they say is that Illinois’s complicated school funding formula is not doing it’s job. 

The plan they’re supporting would re-appropriate state funds to all 860 districts based on poverty levels. 

Some of your wealthier suburb schools could lose around 80% of their state funding however, which could make some votes supporting it hard to come by in an election year.
