Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner may not see his proposed K-12 budget come to a vote in the state senate any time soon.
Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner may not see his proposed K-12 budget come to a vote in the state senate any time soon. Senate President John Cullerton has vowed to block the vote until the governor’s office releases specifics about how the plan will affect individual school districts across the state. At the heart of the debate is a decades-old formula used to distribute funds to districts, which many critics say continues to marginalize low-income and urban districts. (The State Journal-Register)
