State Senators Say Downstate Schools Getting Raw Deal


Two Republican state senators say downstate schools are getting a raw deal when it comes to state funding.

 

Bill Brady and Jason Barickman released a study showing that Chicago gets a disproportionate percentage of state funding for poverty grants, special ed funding, early childhood education programs, and more.

 

The Republicans say those numbers refute Democratic House Speaker Mike Madigan’s contention that downstate schools are getting a free lunch on teacher pension funding and should have to pay more of those costs.
