State Week: Charting A New Course On School Funding

Illinois schools will soon resume receiving state funding, after Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a bipartisan compromise that passed the House and Senate earlier in the week.

The legislation represents the culmination of years of negotiations — on top of decades of other failed attempts at reform — to send more state money to districts with more impoverished students and less property wealth.
