Speak up for the Children to ISBE

The Illinois State Board of Education is holding three more hearings for the public to speak up on where budget priorities need to lie. These events will help ISBE to shape the budget request its leaders will send to the Governor for the coming fiscal year. This will be a particularly tough year, given the state's dire financial situation: we face a nearly $12 billion budget hole, and more revenues are desperately needed to stabilize critical services for kids and families.
