State School Superintendent Warns Of ''Devastating'' Impact If School Funding Cut

Illinois’s top education official has a dire warning if lawmakers proceed with a budget that slashes hundreds of millions from public schools. 


Christopher Koch calls such cuts, quote, “devastating.”  In an interview for the 970 WMAY News Feed, Koch says some Illinois districts won’t be able to keep their doors open for the full school year if they sustain those cuts… and other districts will face deep and damaging cutbacks in teaching staff, course offerings, textbooks and equipment. 


Koch has proposed increasing education funding in the state by a billion dollars next year… but some legislative budget proposals call for reducing it by that amount.
